Wireless Network

MWCC provides secure high-speed wireless data service at the Gardner, Leominster, and Devens campuses.

If the laptop is owned by MWCC, access to all MWCC internal network resources will be available; if it is your own personal laptop, you will receive Internet access only. ITS does not support personally-owned laptops and other devices.

Anti-virus software is required before access to the wireless network will be approved. ITS staff will review anti-virus software, and configure the computer to recognize the wireless network.

Students, faculty and staff employees may use the eduroam wireless network while at any MWCC campus. Configuring your device for the eduroam network will allow you to connect to the network at any college campus that supports eduroam.

If you’re visiting Mount Wachusett Community College, you can use the “MWCC Web Login” wireless network for temporary access to the internet. The network is a free service and is intended for general internet activities while on campus. The guest network uses an unsecured connection, so it is strongly recommended that guests do not transmit sensitive data while connected (such as mobile banking).

At registration, you will be asked to provide your name, phone, and email for the purpose of being able to contact you in the event of issues with your registered device. The College does not share your personal information with any other entities, and it will not be used for any other purpose.

To set up your device on the wireless network, follow these steps:

  1. Choose “MWCC Web Login” in the list of available networks on your device.
  2. Read the information and fill out the registration form in the browser window that automatically opens upon connecting.
  3. Accept the College’s Acceptable Use Policy.

Duration

Access is granted for a 30-day period that begins at the time of registration. Guests may re-register as needed.
