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 many areas on the main campus. This includes all multimedia classrooms, study areas, cafeterias, the entire Library, CVPA, CCB, and Liberal Arts buildings, as well as the Residence Halls. For more information click on the links below.
In order to connect to the campus secure wireless network (eduroam), the wireless device must support X-Authentication (IEEE 802.1x). Most smartphones, tablets, notebooks, etc. 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. They are used by different groups of people. Both networks appear wherever wireless is available.
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. With hundreds of thousands of wireless access-points, eduroam acts as one large, secure, world-wide, wireless hotspot that you can access with your UMass Dartmouth username and password.
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, please visit https://www.eduroam.us/institutions
Note that you must use your full email address in the Username field when accessing the Eduroam network.
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.
