Important information regarding device placement

Wireless is a shared medium and many objects can absorb or redirect some of the signal going to and from your device. To ensure a favorable experience, we recommend placing your stationary device on a desk or dresser free from clutter to reduce signal loss.

One area of your room might be better for devices than another (especially for handheld devices which tend to have weaker antennas). If you encounter connectivity issues, and have ruled out device configuration,  move the device to another area of your room and try again. Due to the design of some consumer wireless devices, you might need to make the device forget DooleyNet and then set it back up in order for it to connect to a stronger signal in a different area.


EmoryUnplugged is the campus-wide wireless network at Emory. Wireless devices capable of WPA2-Enterprise authentication (Username/Password combination) will need to connect to this network for wireless access. Examples of capable devices include laptops, wireless capable desktops, a majority of tablets, and smart phones.

Devices that aren't capable of connecting to EmoryUnplugged might be compatible with the DooleyNet network, which is only broadcast in residence halls. 

For easy directions on connecting your devices to EmoryUnplugged, please follow the EmoryUnplugged setup instructions. If you cannot connect your computer to the EmoryUnplugged network, or if you are experience problems with EmoryUnplugged service in your residence hall, please visit the Student Tech Support office for assistance.


The DooleyNet network provides wireless connectivity for game consoles, eReaders, SmartTVs, Rokus, Apple TVs, Amazon Alexa, Google Home, and other consumer devices that aren't compatible with WPA2-Enterprise networks. Any devices compatible with WPA2-Enterprise networks will need to connect to EmoryUnplugged, the campus-wide wireless network at Emory. 

To connect your non-WPA2-Enterprise compatible devices to DooleyNet, you will need to bring your device along with any power cables, audio cables, and controllers to the Student Tech Support desk. Student Tech Support will assist you by registering the device for use as well as setting it up and testing connectivity.


EmoryGuest is designed for visitors on Emory's Campus. The guest network allows temporary connectivity to visitors with limits to both browsing as well as speed. Students, faculty and staff should not be connecting to EmoryGuest, and instead connect with their login credentials to EmoryUnplugged.
