WVU.Play (MyDevices.wvu.edu)

Overview:

Gaming consoles and smart TVs use the WVU.Play wireless network, with the exception of devices at College Park. You can register and connect these types of devices at mydevices.wvu.edu. You must be on campus and connected to the WVU.Encrypted network to access mydevices.wvu.edu. You will need your device's MAC address before connecting. 

If you are unable to play certain games on your gaming laptop or PC, you may need to connect it to WVU.Play instead of WVU.Encrypted due to port limitations. 

Note: Any device capable of screen or media sharing will be visible to other users while connected to WVU.Play. To prevent unwanted or unintentional access, consider setting a password on these devices.
