How to Login to the Student Wi-Fi

To ensure only authorized users are utilizing the University’s bandwidth resources, the Wi-Fi network at Bethune-Cookman University will periodically ask you to login through your web browser.
To access the wireless network, you will need your computer / domain username and password.  This is the same username / password used to login to the lab computers and is different from your Wildcat Web or BCU Email account. 

Username:

If your BCU email is Jane.D.Doe@students.cookman.edu your username will be:

Password:

Your initial password is 00 followed by your student ID. If your student ID is 123456, your initial password will be:
  • Example Password - 00123456      or       123456
  • Please do NOT include @students.cookman.edu in your username when you login to the wireless.

WiFi Login

SMART TVs and GAMING CONSOLES

If you have a Samsung SmartTV, Roku, Amazon FireTV, Vizio SmartTV, GoogleTV, Playstation, Xbox or Nintendo you will not have to sign-in with your device.  Once you have successfully connected to BCUStudents or BCUStudent-5GHz, your device will automatically be authenticated and logged in.
AppleTVs will require authentication and have to be logged in using your username and password.  If your Apple TV has a browser installed, you can open the login page and sign in.  If you are having difficulties, please email helpdesk@cookman.edu and include your phone number, residence hall and room number.

BCUStudents vs. BCUStudent-5GHz

If your device supports dual band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi, you will see an option to connect to theBCUStudent-5GHz network.  The 5GHz band is newer, less susceptible to interference, and supports much faster data rates.  If the BCUStudents-5GHz is an available wireless network option, we recommend that you select the BCUStudents-5GHz network for your Wi-Fi connection.

Wi-Fi Wireless Printers

Many consumer grade printers now feature Wi-Fi connectivity.  While these printers may work well in a home environment, experience has shown they do not function well on BCU’s network.  We highly recommend connecting to your printer with a USB cord.  Because these printers work unreliably and unpredictably when connected to the campus Wi-Fi, BCU Center for Information Technology staff does not support Wi-Fi printers.
