New Network for Students

Posted on: No Comments


We are excited to announce that we have deployed a new wireless network called eduroam that will replace StuWireless before the beginning of the fall semester.  If you are on campus this summer, we want you to begin moving your devices over to this new network so you can take advantage of a series of new benefits. 

Please, follow the instructions in the link below to connect your devices and note that you will be required to login with your TCU email address as your username.

Benefits to eduroam over StuWireless

Here are some of the new benefits to using the eduroam network:

  • The new system is extremely easy to connect to and has a minimized onboarding process. 
  • The eudroam network doesn’t require you to register your devices in order to get online. 
  • Moving to eduroam means that you will no longer have a limit on the number of devices that you can connect to the wireless network.
  • This new network is also available in hundreds of institutions across the world which will provide you with guest Internet access when you visit other eduroam campuses. See the section below for more details. 

What is eduroam?

The eduroam (education roaming) network is a secure, world-wide roaming wireless service that many campuses have deployed to their networks. Once you are connected to eduroam, you can enjoy secure Wi-Fi access at TCU, and other participating educational institutions across the globe.

New Two Factor Authentication Feature

Posted on: No Comments


We are excited to announce that a secondary email option has been added to the Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) system in myTCU.  This means that you now have the ability to send a PIN number to a personal non-TCU email address which will make it much easier if you are traveling abroad or don’t have access to your cell phone.  Follow the instructions below to take advantage of this new feature. 

How do I add a secondary email for 2FA?

Adding a secondary email can be done by logging into myTCU and clicking the following options:

  1. Click My Employee Center
  2. Click Personal Details
  3. Click Contact Details
  4. Click the + button above the Email Address section

Warning:  You must connect to myTCU from on-campus or you will have to use the 2FA tool from off-campus in order to gain access to these pages. Please, reach out to the IT Support HelpDesk if you have questions about this process.
