We provide high speed internet and wifi inside every building on campus. While we do not have access points installed outdoors, there are a number of outdoor locations where our wifi signal reaches. This would include some of the seating areas and patios adjacent to buildings (i.e. behind the Campus Center along the river).
Wifi is available for use on many devices like laptops, smart phones, smart TVs, and gaming devices. We have two Wifi networks:
The snc network is used on all college-owned devices and by students living in the residence halls. All devices must be registered via the netreg.snc.edu web site. Login with your six-letter login ID. This applies to all students, faculty, and staff.
The sncguest network is used by guests of the college and people who do not have a college account (conference attendees, commencement families, event visitors, etc). During the academic year, this network is not available in residence halls (and is therefore not appropriate for use by students).
Note: If your device has been registered and connected to the "snc" network, it will not work on the "sncguest" network. If this is the case with your device, contact the ITS Service Desk to have us unregister it.
If you find that your device always tries to connect to sncguest instead of snc, it may be because your phone still remembers a time when you used sncguest. To resolve this, just go into your wifi settings and tell your phone to forget sncguest. If you're not sure how to do this, a Google search for your device may help.
We also have additional wifi networks in many buildings that are used on devices that need to connect to an Apple TV. Each building has a unique Apple TV wifi network; instructions for connecting are included in each room that has an Apple TV available.
