Wireless Access

There are more than 2,500 wireless access points installed in the buildings throughout campus; however, there are bound to be areas where the wireless network may not yet be available or access is interrupted while moving around campus. Prioritization of traffic accommodates the requirements of different applications and load balancing. In most cases, wireless is meant to supplement the wired network as the wired connection is always the faster and more stable connection.

eduroam

All active students, faculty and staff should begin to access the eduroam wireless signal for computers, laptops, tablets, and mobile devices beginning Dec. 18, 2020.

eduroam replaced the previous wireless network, called CCUnwired. The CCUnwired wireless network retired as of 5 p.m. on Feb. 15, 2021. Access to CCUResNet in University Housing locations do not change.

The issue previously reported with Android devices and the ability to connect to eduroam is resolved.  Please access the eduroam page to learn how to connect to eduroam here: Learn more »

CCUResNet

If you reside or will reside in University Housing, there are no changes to CCUResNet wireless access. Your device will continue to be able to "see" CCUResNet.

SafeConnect is required for authentication. As a security measure, the campus network requires a periodic reauthentication via SafeConnect every 30 days. If you are having trouble accessing the CCU's wireless network, try logging into your wireless account where you will be asked for your CCU username and password, and you will be asked to agree to the terms of use by selecting the agree box.
