All on-ground students will have wireless access to the Internet and World Wide Web information resources. To connect, search for available wireless networks and choose CU-students. This network is not locked, so you can attach without a key. Windows XP will usually display a small window in the lower right of the screen telling you that wireless networks have been detected. If you are using Microsoft Vista or a Mac, consult the documentation that came with your system for how to connect to a wireless network.
If you are in the residence halls, each of the rooms has a wired internet connection as well. Students will need a CAT 5, CAT 5e or CAT 6 network cable to attach to it. These are readily available at the CU Bookstore or almost any store with an office supplies section (Wal-Mart, Target, and of course OfficeMax).

Nothing will be placed on a University web page without the permission and approval of IT.
