Wireless certificate change - Friday, April 11 at 7am


The wireless certificate used by McGill University will be changed on Friday, April 11th at 7:00 am. The majority of devices should automatically re-authenticate to the wireless network and should not experience any loss of connectivity.

If you are presented with a certificate (or Windows Security) warning when connecting to McGill's wireless networks after the change, do one of the following:

  • Accept the new certificate (thawte Primary Root CA) if prompted by clicking Connect
  • Manually change your saved wireless connection to use the new thawte Primary Root CA certificate.

See the Index of articles for setting up wireless connectivity for steps on configuring your wireless device. If you have any issues, please contact the IT Service Desk.
