There are two wireless services available at Carleton: CU-Wireless and Eduroam and both are free for students, faculty and staff.

Wireless is currently available in key locations across campus. To connect, all you need is a laptop or portable device with a Wi-Fi compatible network interface card and a MyCarletonOne account.

Returning Wireless Users

We have recently updated our wireless certificate.  As a result, if you have the CU-Wireless profile saved on your device, it won’t work with the new certificate.

To resolve this issue, you can either run the tool again to update the profile – simply go to, launch the web tool and follow the steps provided, or manually delete your old profile and then auto discover CU-Wireless without using the web tool.
