I would like more information about the university wireless and network

Trine University has wireless available in all academic and administrative buildings, student villas, and in common areas in the apartments and units.  If students wish to connect a computer to the network there are a number of ways to complete this.  

  • For the fastest connection, a student can bring/purchase an ethernet cable for their bedroom to connect to their personal computers. Also, you can contact the Information Technology desk to get a ethernet cable as well. We have several different lengths available.
  • Alternatively, wireless access is available in all residential buildings. For most devices, use the "Thunder_WIFI" network. Users need to use their username (not full email address) and password in order to authenticate. 
  • Students in residential halls should use "Thunder_Devices" network for devices unable to connect via "Thunder_WIFI". The password is Thunderstorm.

Students should use up-to-date anti-virus software in order to access the university network and the Internet.  University recommended anti-virus software includes Avast, Microsoft Security Essentials, Avira Security programs.

Please Note: Personal wireless access points and/or routers are not allowed.

For further questions or issues about Security/Anti Virus programs please contact the Help Desk.
