Article SummaryWireless in residence is the same as on campus - you can connect to ACSecure or ACGuest if you don't have a network account. Wireless is available in public areas and in rooms.
If you are staying in residence at Woodroffe campus, you have access to the college wireless network from your room!
Every other room in residence has an Aruba wireless access point (AP) which allows students in all rooms to access the college wireless network.

To access the college wireless network:
If you are in your residence room you can also use the wired network: Note:  ACGuest is an open guest network. It is not secure. Algonquin College recommends that to protect your information when using ACGuest, send information only to sites that are fully encrypted, and avoid using mobile apps that require personal or financial information. Use a virtual private network (VPN) service to encrypt traffic between your computer and the internet whenever possible - for help with VPN, see What is VPN?. Staff, Faculty and Students of Algonquin College should always use ACSecure. For more information on data privacy see the Algonquin College Information Security website.
