Connecting Your Computer to the Network
For the fastest available connection on campus, you will want to "plug-in" to the data port that is available in every residence hall room, most common areas and faculty/staff offices. View instructions for a wired connection.
There are two broadcast wireless networks at UNCW. Faculty, staff and students should connect through hawkwifi. View instructions for a wireless connection.
(NOTE: To protect the UNCW network and student access to it, the following are not permitted: personal wireless printers, wireless access points and routers.)
Students should contact the Technology Assistance Center (TAC) at 962-HELP (4357) if they cannot successfully connect their residence hall computer to the network.
