The university also has a fast and secure wireless network. Students can connect to “CaseWireless” from laptops, smartphones, tablets or media players to access a fast and secure wireless connection anywhere on campus.

Students can receive assistance day or night with registration or any other technology service by visiting or by calling the Information Technology Services desk at 216.368.4357.
