We are pleased to provide you with services that keep you connected.

Computer connectivity — wireless

All of Union’s buildings are covered by the student wireless network named UC_Student. For access, log in to the Portal and click on Student Life then Wireless Key

Dorm computer connectivity — Ethernet

Most dorm rooms are supplied with two (blue and orange) wired Ethernet connections and a cable TV connection. Cable TV requires subscription from Spectrum.
