Wireless Network

Who can access the wireless network?

CSUN students, faculty, staff, and guests who have a valid user ID and password. To request a guest account, university departments should contact the IT Help Center.


How do I access the wireless network?

Connect to CSUN's encrypted wireless network, csun_wpa2. For access instructions, locate your OS or device from the following list. Most Wi-Fi capable devices purchased since the last quarter of 2006 are compatible. If you experience any problems, please contact the IT Help Center. Note: Gaming devices (e.g. Nintendo, PlayStation, Xbox etc.) are not compatible.


Open Wireless (csun)

An non-encrypted wireless network, csun, is also available; however, you are encouraged to use csun_wpa2 for additional security and to eliminate having to re-authenticate between wireless zones. Refer to the following guides if you are having trouble connecting to csun.
