The CSU wireless network covers 99% of all buildings and outdoor areas. Staff may use CSU owned or personally owned wireless capable mobile devices to connect to the network and access the Internet. CSU owned computers have direct access to all network resources whereas personally owned devices will provide the same access levels as off campus locations (e.g. use Virtual Desktop to access P and S).
The CSU wireless network provides a secure connection to those computers and devices that can support the required encryption (security) settings. Those that can't support those settings can still connect but they are not secure connections.

The speed of your network connection will vary and is dependent upon a number of factors including distance from a wireless access point, number of people connected to the same access point as you, other wireless devices in close proximity and the protocol and band used by your device when connecting. The wireless network supports the following speeds:
