NUTTLE ONLY Wireless

There is a new wireless network that is only available in Nuttle Hall, “UMES-STUDENT-Nuttle”.  This wireless network is designed for use by stationary devices within Nuttle Hall that require wireless Internet access, i.e. gaming consoles, smart TVs, media devices, etc. 

 Here’s how to connect to UMES-STUDENT-Nuttle:

  1. When you are asked for the network password, enter the UMES campus phone number 4106512200 (no dashes)
  2. Additionally, you may have to open a browser and logon using your UMES username and password.

This wireless network is designed for use by stationary devices within Nuttle Hall that require wireless Internet access, i.e. gaming consoles, smart TVs, etc. 

Devices such as mobile phones, laptops, tablets, etc, that roam on campus from building to building should connect to the “UMES-STUDENT” network to achieve a better, more consistent wireless connection while roaming.
