Students – Getting Connected to the TCU Network

The Information Technology division would like to take this opportunity to welcome our students back to campus and provide you with a few pieces of information about how to connect to the TCU network.

TCU StuWireless Network

You must register each of your devices on the network before you can connect to the Internet.  All you have to do is connect your laptop to the Get Connected wireless network, then open a web browser and go to a non-TCU website.

Keep in mind that mobile devices (i.e. Phones, iPads, and Tablets) have to be manually registered in myTCU from a device that is already connected to the Internet.  Check our Knowledgebase for more information about how to do this.

Warning:  Most wireless printers do not have the capability to connect to a WPA2 Enterprise network so we recommend that you connect them directly to your computer with a USB cable.  Don’t forget that wireless routers are NOT allowed on the TCU network.

TCU Wired Network

Once you plug a desktop/laptop computer into a wired jack in your room all you have to do is open up a web browser and use the setup page to register your device.

Game Consoles, Blu-Ray Players, and Smart TV’s will all need to go on the wired network (i.e. Xbox, PS3, or Wii), and they will have to be manually registered in myTCU from a device that is already connected to the Internet.  Check our Knowledgebase for more information about how to do this.

How do you get help?

We understand that getting connected to the network is an important part of the move-in process and the IT Support HelpDesk will be available for an extended period of time to help you out.
