IT Services - Service Announcement - New Wireless Network Available in Main Campus Residence Locations - 8/20/2019

Over the summer, IT Services has been reviewing and working on a solution to improve the wireless connectivity and network registration of devices students bring to campus when moving into and living in an on campus residence. As part of this work, a new wireless network was made available in all Main Campus residence halls and apartments that will allow students to connect their devices to the wireless network without the need to register the device using their computing ID and password. This new wireless name is called FSUatHome and replaces the FSUStudent and FSUStudent2 networks that were previously available. 
When students arrive on campus, they can simply connect to the FSUatHome wireless network (password is FSUatHome) and they will automatically be connected to the internet. No need to download an application or sign in with credentials. It is just like connecting to a wireless network at home or local restaurant/coffee shop. With FSUatHome students can connect their phones, computers, tablets, game consoles, streaming devices, and TVs in just a few short minutes. 
*Note: If students want to use their cell phone, computer, or tablet on the wireless network outside of the residence halls and apartments, they will need to connect to the FerrisWiFi network and register their device as this network requires authentication with a computing ID and password. FerrisWiFi is also available in the residence halls and apartments.
