UMass Dartmouth Wireless Network

Wireless at UMass Dartmouth

The university has deployed a wireless network that allows faculty, staff and students to connect to the Internet and other campus services in most areas on the main campus. This includes all academic buildings, study areas, cafeterias, and the Claire T. Carney Library, as well as the Residence Halls.

To connect to our wireless network (eduroam), the wireless device must support X-Authentication (IEEE 802.1x). Most smartphones, tablets, and notebooks support this technology.

Game consoles and media streaming devices are allowed on the campus network, and may be used wired or wirelessly. Visit the Game Consoles and Media Streaming page for more information.

Wi-Fi Calling is available! Many smartphones and cell carriers now support Wi-Fi calling which utilizes wireless connectivity to make calls when cell service is limited or not available.

Two wireless networks: eduroam and CorsairWiFi

UMass Dartmouth has two wireless networks: eduroam and CorsairWiFi.

eduroam

Eduroam is a global academic wireless network. UMass Dartmouth students, faculty and staff can use their UMassD Logon credentials to use the eduroam network on campus, and when visiting other academic institutions.

Participating eduroam institutions offer access to faculty, staff, students and affiliates who participate in conferences or collaborative work, studying abroad, NCAA activities, regional academic exchange, and more. For a list of all eduroam affiliated sites, visit https://www.eduroam.us/institutions

Note that you must use your full email address in the username field when accessing the Eduroam network.

Connect your mobile device to the eduroam network

While most laptops and mobile devices work with eduroam, there are a few known hardware incompatibilities with the eduroam network. This is not specific to UMass Dartmouth. If you are having difficulties connecting, contact CITS at 508.999.8900 .

CorsairWiFi

The CorsairWiFi wireless network is used by visitors to campus, and for residents' game consoles and media streaming devices. It cannot be used to access campus email, the myUMassD portal, or most administrative systems. Guests must register to gain 24 hours of access.

Acceptable Use of Information Technology Resources Policy

Before you move on, please familiarize yourself with UMass Dartmouth's Acceptable Use Of Information Technology Resources Policy. As a user of our network and computer systems, you are responsible for complying with these policies.
