Internet Access


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).

Users will not be allowed to post Web pages on the University’s network and computer systems, except with authorization from IT and/or Cumberland University. However, users may contribute to a University web page when asked to do so by a University faculty member or administrator. Nothing will be placed on a University web page without the permission and approval of IT.
