Wired and Wireless Access

Frostburg State University provides a fast and secure fiber-optic computing network. Both wired and wireless connections are available. All students, faculty, and staff can connect to the network. Visit the FSU Network Accounts & Access page for more information about the FSU network.

Wired Network Access

  • As a resident student, you want to start computing right away. Residence hall rooms include a direct Internet connection to the FSU network for each student (1 student; 1 connection/2 students; 2 connections). Rooms feature wired connectivity with limited wireless in lounge areas. You will need to bring a computer and an Ethernet cable to connect to the wired network port in your room. For wireless requirements, see Wireless Network information below.

    As a faculty or staff member, someone in the Office of Information Technology will set up your network access. You may also request assistance through the IT Help Desk.

Wireless Network Access

The university has a wireless network in addition to the standard wired network.  Faculty, staff and students can connect to the university’s wireless network by connecting to  WiFi@FSU and entering your provided network credentials.

Computers must be equipped with a wireless network adapter (802.11 g/n/ac) to connect to the wireless network.  We recommend purchasing a dual band wireless adapter (2.4GHz/5GHz) as this will enhance your wireless computing experience.

Due to the limited wireless coverage in the residence halls, pre-configured wireless access points are available for purchase from the FSU Bookstore for use in you rooms.

Wireless Locations

All residence halls have partial coverage directly in (and nearby) common areas. See the map below for complete campus coverage.
