Eckerd Wireless

There are four wireless networks available on campus for faculty, staff, and students named ECwifi, ECguest, MyResnet, and Eduroam.


ECwifi is the main network used by faculty, staff, and students (excluding the residence halls which are on MyResNet). When connecting to the network you will be asked to enter your Eckerd username and password. For specific details on how to connect please follow these instructions.


ECguest is available for short term guest access. After you connect to this network, a web browser will open up asking you to enter your name, email address, and phone number. Once you do this, a “guest pass” code will be emailed and text messaged to you. To complete your access to the network, you will need to enter that code into the web browser. Guest pass codes will be good for up to 7 days. If you are hosting an event on campus, you can generate this code for your guests in advance. Multiple guests can use the same guest pass. More detailed instructions are available here.


MyResnet is a student only network available only in the residence halls on campus. This network is run by a third party that is available 24x7 for support. For more information on how to set up your student account, connect your devices, or contact support, please see the ITS For Students page located here.


Eduroam is a secure, world-wide wireless service developed for and by the international research and education community. Eduroam allows students, researchers, and staff to roam and find connectivity at more than 2,500 locations in the US and more than 33,000 worldwide. You will find and be able to connect to the Eduroam wireless network at Universities, national labs, museums, and other institutions across the globe using your Eckerd credentials.

This network is also available on campus so that we can provide easier access for guests from other institutions. Eckerd faculty, staff, and students should still use ECwifi on campus because it provides access to more campus resources. When connecting to Eduroam, you will need to add as part of your username.

You can use this interactive map to locate where Eduroam is available.
