Wireless Networks Available on Campus

ACADIA

This network should be used by ALL faculty, staff, and students to connect their computers, laptops, and/or mobile devices. This network allows access to Acadia’s online resources and Internet access while on campus. This network requires you to have an active network account which uses the same login information that you use to access Central, ACORN, email, etc.

To connect to this network, click on the wifi icon in your task bar (either the bottom right for Windows, or top right on a Mac) and choose "Acadia". Here you will be prompted to enter your user name (Example: 012345s or jsmith) and your password.

ACADIA GUESTS

This network is available for any visitor on campus. It allows the visitor Internet access only and limited access to Acadia's online resources. This access is granted for 120 minutes at a time.

To connect to this network, click on the wifi icon in your task bar (either the bottom right for Windows, or top right on a Mac) and choose "Acadia Guests". Your web browser should open to an Acadia webpage prompting you to enter your email address.

EDUROAM

Eduroam (education roaming) is a wireless service that allows students, staff, and faculty to use their own institution’s wireless credentials to access wireless network services when visiting any other Eduroam affiliated institution. This is done without needing to setup a guest account or join a guest-only network at the institution you are visiting. Once eduraom is set up, your wireless services will work at any other Eduroam member institution in the world.
