Internet Access in the Residence Halls

Frostburg State University provides free access to the Internet for its employees and on-campus students over a 1GB connection to the Internet.

Internet Access from the FSU Residence Halls
Frostburg State University provides free access to the Internet for its on-campus students.

From home, FSU students must use an ISP for dial-up or high speed broadband access to the Internet. FSU recommends broadband access which may be acquired through Verizon or the local cable company.

To access the Internet through a residence hall connection, you must have an Ethernet adapter (card) installed in your computer. Many new computer systems include a built-in network adapter. If your system does not, you can purchase an adapter from the FSU Bookstore or from a reputable computer supply store.

Internet Materials Found at the FSU Bookstore
Network hardware and cabling are available on campus at the FSU Bookstore. These items include:

  • PC Ethernet Adapters
  • Wireless Adapters
  • Pre-configured wireless access points
  • Ethernet Cables (to connect your computer to the wall plate) in various lengths

Connecting To The Internet
After your computer has an Ethernet card installed and a cable plugged into your wall port, you will automatically be connected. The first time you browse the internet you will need to login with your FSU username and password and download a policy key program.

Electronic Ethics
There are many rules and laws governing usage of the Internet. Don’t jeopardize your future by violating these guidelines. It is essential that you read the policy on Responsible Computing at Frostburg State University so that you will know how to conduct yourself on the Internet.
