Colgate provides both wired and Wi-Fi access to the network through the campus.

In the event of a change in your password or any configuration changes, you may need to forget eduroam network on your device before using the instructions above.

Access for Guests

Guests to campus may connect to the Colgate-Guest Wi-Fi network for free.

Prior to browsing, users will be prompted to accept an "Acceptable Use Policy."

In some circumstances visitors to campus may register their devices with ITS for access to Colgate's wired network.

For details, contact the ITS Service Desk.

Restrictions and Devices Not Supported on Network

Personal wireless printers that broadcast a network name for a connection are not permitted. If you have one of these printers, please turn off the wireless and connect it directly to your computer via its supplied USB cable while on campus.

IP telephones and 3G/4G range extenders are not readily supported. These devices often use GPS which can be a difficult signal to capture on campus and often encounters compatibility issues with the University's network security equipment.

Sniffers or network analyzers of any kind are not permitted. These devices and software/hardware configurations are meant to watch traffic and are therefore in violation of Colgate's Acceptable Use Policy, as well as many laws.

These devices — such as the AppleTV — are not currently supported on enterprise-class networks. Colgate is currently working to eliminate this limitation. While you may find these devices work in some areas of the campus at certain times, there is no guarantee of their functionality.

Home routers, wireless access points, hubs, or switches, whether wired or wireless, are not supported. These devices can cause issues with performance across the network.
