GSU Wireless
While on any Georgia State University campus, you can access the GSU wireless network.
Eduroam
The Eduroam academic community wireless network allows you to connect to the Internet at many other higher education institutions in Georgia, across the country and internationally, using your CampusID email address as your username, and your CampusID password.

Drive-Up Wifi at Public Libraries

While public libraries are closed, wifi is still available from the parking lots of many Georgia public libraries. When visiting these libraries, please stay in your vehicle and observe health guidelines to keep a distance of at least six feet away from others. Also, follow local governments’ rules and directions restricting travel and outdoor activities.

Free and Low Cost Offers from Broadband Service Providers

Many Internet providers are offering no cost or low cost options for students who need to take their classes online. Many of these same companies are lifting data caps, to make sure you can more easily download your course content. Although Georgia State does not promote or endorse any specific vendor, one of these options may work for your needs.
