Wireless @ CSU - CSUconnect

Overview

CSU hosts and manages one of the largest wireless networks in Australia.

Delivering high speed, mobile access for the CSU community, CSU's wireless network provides almost blanket Wi-Fi coverage across 10 distinct CSU campuses, covering over 1.2 million sqm and in excess of 450 buildings.

Coverage extends to outdoor areas and student residences, and has been engineered to accommodate the load of high capacity areas such as lecture theatres and other learning spaces, as well as on-campus residences.

Any browser-based Wi-Fi device that supports the wireless protocols 802.11n and 802.11g can connect to CSU's wireless network. The only other requirement for access is having an active CSU account.

CSU's main wireless network, CSUconnect, delivers encrypted Wi-Fi access. This provides the most secure option for wireless connectivity and as most mobile devices support the encryption method used, we strongly recommend CSUconnect is your default wireless network.

Connectivity is also provided via an open, unencrypted wireless network for those limited number of mobile devices that do not support encryption.
