Wireless coverage throughout all Tulane campuses, including common areas, classrooms, residence halls, and outdoor areas. Residence halls on both campuses offer one Ethernet connection for each occupant.


Personal Wireless Networks: Students cannot broadcast personal wireless networks using routers. These rogue networks can interfere with the primary wireless network. They also pose a security risk to your personal and Tulane data. 

Wireless Printing: Students cannot operate wireless printers on Tulane wireless networks. Please use a USB cable that connects your printer to your computer. USB cables are available at the Technology Connection store on the first floor of the Lavin-Bernick Center (LBC).

Connecting Wireless Entertainment & ADA Devices


All other devices that require a wireless connection (excluding those that require Eduroam) must connect to the "tulane" Wi-Fi network. These devices include but are not limited to gaming systems, smart TVs and speakers, and streaming and ADA devices. To set up a wireless connection on these devices, follow the steps below:

  1. locate the 12-digit MAC address either in its settings or on the back or bottom of the device.
  2. log in to the tuwac.tcs.tulane.edu portal using your Tulane username (not including the @tulane.edu) and password.
  3. register your device using the MAC address.
  4. wait 15 minutes before connecting the device to the "tulane" Wi-Fi.

Please DO NOT connect these devices to "Eduroam" or "Tulane Guest."

What is a MAC address? A 12-character ID code consisting of numbers and letters separated by colons and hyphens is usually located on the back of your device or within its settings. Click here to locate your device's MAC address.
