In order to connect to UT Tyler's free wireless Internet service, Patriot*Air, you must first be in a campus building with wireless access. Most buildings on campus are wireless-ready and all efforts are being made to ensure that all buildings have the ability to provide wireless access.

Once you are in a wireless-capable area, you will be able to connect to Patriot*Air by following these steps:

  1. Open your wireless networks connection utility, select the Patriot*Air network and click connect. You may have to refresh your view to pick up the network.
  2. Once connected, open up your Web browser. The opening Web page will require you to log in using your Patriots Domain credentials. If you do not know your Patriots username and/or password please contact IT Support at 903.565.5555 or by email at
