Network and Device Connectivity

University Technology Services manages the University Network Infrastructure, which provides the University with both wired Ethernet and wireless service.

 

Wireless

University Technology Services provides the following wireless network services:

SLUNET
SLUNET is the primary, secure, wireless network which is accessible to all Saint Leo University employees and students. Access to the SLUNET wireless network requires Saint Leo log in credentials. When using the SLUNET wireless network, University employees and students are required to adhere to the Saint Leo University User Access Policy.

Guest
Wireless access is available to guests of Saint Leo University. Guests may connect to the SLU-Guest network. Upon connection, guests will be required to enter an email address and agree to adhere to the University User Access Policy before gaining access. This connection does time out after a specified period, and will require the guest to reconnect if they wish to continue use of the network. 

Special Events Access
Certain events require that guests have extended access (ex. Guest speakers, vendors, athletic team administrators, board of directors, etc.). Special Event access may be requested through UTS. If approved, the guest(s) will receive temporary credentials which will enable them to access the wireless network for the requested duration. Guests using Special Event Wireless access are required to adhere to the Saint Leo University User Access Policy

Personal Devices

Wireless Access Point Leasing
University Technology Services continuously develops the University network infrastructure to support additional individuals and devices. There are locations within the residence halls that may require additional network support. Students may request to lease a wireless access point for their residence through UTS. Network technicians will make an assessment of the network and if necessary, will approve the lease of a wireless access point for the student to use the year. If the student relocates, they will be required to contact UTS to return the device or transition the connection point. 

Gaming Console and Personal Device Configurations
The Saint Leo University network supports the use of laptops, desktops, phones, and tablets. Other devices, such as gaming consoles and Smart TVs, will require network configuration for access.
