Connect to wireless (WiFi) on campus
St. John Fisher College provides wireless in all buildings on campus including Residence Halls, Academic, and Administration Buildings. The College offers a secure wireless connection to provide enhanced wireless security to the College Community. When using the SJFC wireless networks, you will have enhanced security and your Internet usage will no longer be visible by others using the unsecured wireless network.
Please remember that ANY unsecured wireless network (e.g. Starbucks, Mom’s Coffee & Cookie shop, etc.) are just that…UNSECURE. That means other people using that network may be able to see your Internet traffic.
The three wireless networks available across campus are:
In Academic & Administration Buildings, and Residence Halls
SJFC-WiFi will utilize the WPA-2 Enterprise protocol. WPA-2 Enterprise is built into all current operating systems and mobile devices. Users connect to the College’s main network through a secured encrypted connection. The secure network is available for all St. John Fisher College owned/managed devices as well as any personal devices (BYOD).
SJFC-Guest is an open wireless network routed directly to the internet (similar to Starbucks). The unencrypted wireless connection provides basic internet access with no access to campus resources, i.e., printing. The guest service is subject to the College’s Acceptable Use Policy (AUP).
In Residence Halls
The wireless network for residential halls Res-Guest is available in all locations in each building for devices that can't connect to SJFC-WiFi.
