I would like more information about the university wireless and network

NETWORK/WIRELESS ACCESS
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.
