NUWave FAQ’s

What is NUwave?
NUwave is Northeastern University’s secured wireless internet service.

What do I need to connect to NUwave?
Besides a computer with a wireless card, students will need their myNEU credentials (username and password) to connect to NUwave.

Where can I access NUwave?
NUWave is accessible in all academic and administrative buildings on campus, and in all classrooms. By August 15, 2015, all Northeastern-owned residential buildings will have 100% NUwave access. A full list of buildings can be found here

Why should I use NUwave instead of NUwave-guest?
Northeastern students, faculty, staff and sponsored accounts must use the secure wireless network NUwave, as it protects your network activity. NUwave-guest access is intended for limited guest wireless access only. Traffic over NUwave-guest is NOT encrypted, meaning information like passwords, credit card numbers, and sensitive personal information could be captured by others in the area.

Please note that NUwave offers several advantages:

  • It is the secure wireless network on campus
  • There is no registration required – simply enter and save your myNEU credentials for easy wireless access
  • There is no time limit restriction
