Internet access is provided to all students living on-campus and those in University Park.

Note:  NO HUBS, SWITCHES, ROUTERS OR WIRELESS ACCESS POINTS ARE ALLOWED TO BE HOOKED UP TO YOUR ETHERNET PORT.

Once you connect your computer to the Ethernet port, you'll be prompted to login to a web portal (cp.salisbury.edu) 


Once you log in with your SU username and password, you will have internet access. You may be prompted to log in again from time to time to refresh your connection. 

All residence hall Ethernet ports can support 10/100/1000 mb speeds. All network cards developed in the past 10 years can support these speeds, so as long as your computer has an Ethernet card, you should be able to connect. If you are unsure if your computer has a Ethernet card, look on the back of your computer (or back/sides of your laptop) for a port that looks similar to the ones listed below:

  • Desktop Computer Ethernet Port picture (onboard) - newer computers
  • Laptop Computer Ethernet Port picture


A common problem during move-in is mixing up a Phone cable and an Ethernet Cable. A Phone cable connector will have 2 or 4 gold pins on it and an Ethernet cable connector will have 8 gold pins. Also the Ethernet plug on the end of the cable is generally larger. See the picture below for a side-by-side comparison:
