2. Get Connected

Ease your transition into the Virginia Tech with these 5 simple steps:

  1. Register at least one 2-factor authentication device that you plan to bring with you to Virginia Tech by visiting Hokie SPA. After entering your PID and password, follow the prompts to enroll in 2-factor authentication. For more information on Login and 2-factor authentication, see http://www.it.vt.edu/2factor and Using 2-Factor Authentication

  2. Bring a copy of your purchase receipt in case you need to have warranty repair performed.

  3. Don't wait! Upon arrival, unpack, set up your computer, and connect it to the network. Find instructions on connecting to the network here: Manually Connecting to Virginia Tech Wireless eduroam
