We are currently upgrading our wireless network campus-wide. The new network is currently available in Labry, Memorial, and South Hall and will be added to more locations over time. The new network name is CU-Student-WiFi and the access password is bulldogs.
The OIT Helpdesk is available in the basement of Labry hall at the following times:
If you need assistance outside of these hours, click here- Submit a Tech Request (PDF instructions), or leave a message at 615-547-1240. Remember, we cannot maintain or repair student-owned equipment.
(If you have never used the Technology Helpdesk Request link before, the default password is cubulldogs.)
New for Summer and Fall 2012, Canvas replaces Blackboard. Unlike Blackboard, Canvas does not require its own username/password combination. You can log on to Canvas with the same username and password you use to log in to computer lab systems.
If you change your password from a lab computer, your Canvas password will change, too.
If you are a new student you may not be able to log in to Canvas at the beginning of the semester until your course selections have been finalized and processed into the system.
Student Login Info
Cumberland University uses the same username & password for Computer Labs, Canvas, Email, and CAMS Portal. Here's how to determine yours:
Username: First initial, middle initial, last name and the last two digits of the SSN. Example: Pat D. Jones, 123-44-5566 = pdjones66. NOTE: If you did not submit a middle name when you applied to CU, do not include a middle initial in your username.
Password: Capital first initial, capital last initial, last six digits of your SSN. From the example above: PJ445566
Address - firstname.lastname@example.org
Login Page - https://www.gmail.com
Log on using your entire email address. Your password uses the same password convention explained above.
Our current password convention came into effect in Fall 11 because of a policy change with a service provider. If you are a returning student and the rules do not work for you, try using only the last 6 digits of your SSN as your password. If that doesn't work, check out the Helpdesk section below.
Your student copier code is your capital first initial, capital last initial, and the last six of your SSN. From the example above: PJ445566 (same as your password).
