eduroam Wireless Access

Beginning December 18, 2020, eduroam is the wireless signal available for all students, faculty, and staff at CCU on main campus. Additionally, visitors from other eduroam participating campuses can easily access this signal using the same credentials they use at their participating institution.

The previous wireless network, called CCUnwired is being replaced by eduroam. To allow for a smooth transition for the CCU community, the CCUnwired wireless network will remain available until Jan. 29, 2021. Access to CCUResNet in University Housing locations will not change.

Access to eduroam is available on campus in all locations where there is Wi-Fi. After you successfully log into eduroam, you will have internet access (some restrictions apply).

Troubleshooting

The Office of Information Technology Services and Student Computing Services is unable to troubleshoot or reset the password for credentials from another organization.

If you are a visitor and your organization does not participate in eduroam, consider connecting to the CCUguest network by contacting the ITS Service Center at 843-349-5000.

ITS recommends forgetting the CCUnwired network on your computer or mobile device(s). Access your network or Wi-Fi settings on your device, and select CCUnwired network and choose “forget.” Then, follow the instructions above to connect to eduroam.
