Connecting to CUWireless (Secure Connection)

CUWireless is an encrypted and authenticated wireless network for use by students, faculty, staff, and registered guests.  CUWireless is the only wireless connection that allows full access to all servers and services within Creighton and therefore is usually the fastest of the wireless networks.  You must have a BLUE account to log on and connect to this network.  You can find directions for your specific operating system below.  (We are updating documentation, so some items may refer to older networks and security certificates - if you need assistance, please contact the Service Desk at 402-280-1111)

Connecting to CUGuest (unsecure) 

This network is not encrypted and does not require authentication, though it is firewalled from servers and services at Creighton that are not web based.  You will not be able to access the NEST or Blueline.  CUGuest is the preferred mechanism for temporary guest access directly to the Internet.

To connect to CUGuest, simply select the SSID CUGuest from your device's list of available networks.  As long as your device is 802.11a/b/g/n capable, it should be able to connect.

Gaming Consoles on Wireless

*Note: connection speeds will not be as fast as when using a wired network connection.

To connect your device wirelessly, you will need additional help with configurations. To receive assistance:

  • Go to and sign in with your NetID and Blue Password.
  • Select Accept for the notice for Acceptable Use.
  • Next follow the instructions listed in order to connect to a new game console and Smart TV or manage an existing device.

*Please keep in mind most consoles have a MAC Address for both an Ethernet Port AND a Wireless Card. It is critical that you provide the MAC Address of the method of connection you are using.
