Network, Wireless, Phones, TV

All buildings on campus—from academic, to administrative, to residential—are connected by the Michigan Tech data network. Resnet is the data network that connects all Michigan Tech residence halls and apartments. In addition, we manage wireless service which is available to all Michigan Tech students, staff, faculty, and their guests at no charge.

Wireless Networks


Michigan Tech is a member of eduroam, a wireless network that lets active faculty, staff and students securely connect to the Internet when they travel to other eduroam campuses. The eduroam network shows up on your computers and devices as the wireless SSID “eduroam.” Your Michigan Tech username and password are used to connect to the network.

Likewise, visitors from participating schools can log on to eduroam at Michigan Tech with their school credentials; it's another convenient secure wireless option for traveling faculty, staff, students and visitors.

For information on setting up your laptop or mobile device, please visit our eduroam Information article in the knowledge base.

Guest Wireless

The University guest wireless service eliminates the need for visitors to register or have a temporary user name/password. This experience is similar to what you typically find in hotels and coffee shops. Our Support Center contains more information on connecting to Michigan Tech wireless.

Cable TV

SpectrumU Streaming service is provided to all students living in the Heights or campus apartment housing.
