Setting up a dial up connection
The final way is suggested if your computer has a working dial-up modem and you live close enough to Quinnipiac that you can call the university without entering an area code.
Legacy information about remote dial-up access
Quinnipiac University provides dial-up access to the network for those users off campus who do not have access to broadband. QU Dial-up is a secure way to connect to the QU network, but dial-up does not allow you to connect to all aspects of the network.
A dial-up network must be installed on your machine. Contact the Computer Help Desk for more information. The remote dial-up access number is 203-927-4820. (Long distance charges may apply.)
Please note that dial-up access is prone to weather and phone line conditions. Should your initial connection fail, do not make numerous attempts in a short period of time, but wait about 10 minutes between attempts.
