FSU Network Accounts & Access
The FSU Network
Frostburg State University is committed to providing a fast, safe, and secure network. Connection access to the fiber-optic backbone can be made by "plugging in" to the university network (wired) or through wireless access.
Access to the FSU Network
The network account is the core of computing access at FSU. It gives managed and secure access to the campus network and FSU computing resources. The FSU network account consists of an FSU username and password. You will use your FSU username and password to log in to any computer attached to the University's network, including all academic lab computers. Access to most University computing systems & services, including e-mail, Blackboard, web servers, network storage system, PAWS and the student network registration system, is controlled through your network account as well.
