Locations and Restrictions
There is wireless coverage throughout all Tulane campuses, including common areas, classrooms, residence halls, and common areas. Residence halls on both campuses offer one Ethernet connection for each occupant.
Students are not allowed to use routers to broadcast personal wireless networks. These rogue networks can interfere with the primary wireless network.
Students are not allowed to operate wireless printers, but may use a USB cable that connects your printer to your computer. USB cables are available for purchase at the Technology Connection in the Lavin-Bernick Center.
Connecting Your Entertainment Devices
Entertainment devices must be registered to use the "Tulane" WiFi network. You will need the device's MAC address–a 12 character identification code, consisting of numbers and letters separated by colons and hyphens, usually located on the back of your device.
Once your device has been registered, wait 15 minutes and connect to the wifi network "Tulane." DO NOT connect to "Eduroam" or "Tulaneguest".
It should connect without asking for a username or password. If it does not connect, please call the Service Desk, 504-988-8888.
Expanded Outdoor WiFi
Stay connected and work seamlessly outdoors
Faculty, staff, students and affiliates can now seamlessly work and learn outdoors across the Uptown campus while practicing social distancing. We have expanded Tulane's WIFI coverage, so users can stay connected to eduroam within our coverage areas. Guests can also access our outdoor WIFI using their Tulane guest credentials. This project is a part of the COVID-19 Outdoor Activation project, which includes the addition of outdoor furniture to accommodate seating in these spaces.
