Gaming Systems, Digital Assistants, and Streaming Devices

Gaming systems, streaming devices, and smart TVs can must be registered before connecting to WiFi. You can register your smart TV's, game consoles, media players, and more using the registration page.


Wired Ethernet Connection

Whenever possible, we suggest connecting to wired Ethernet connections on campus. Use high-speed ethernet connections in residence halls, academic buildings, and computer labs. An Ethernet connection provides a more stable, dedicated, faster connection compared to wireless.
