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.
