OIT has installed wireless access to the data network in a number of locations around campus. This installation is intended to provide coverage in all classrooms and public computing facilities, as well as large group study spaces on campus.
Use of the wireless network requires compliance with the University's Wireless Access Policy.
Instructions for Access
For general and guest wireless access, the ClarksonUniversity SSID is available with no authentication.
A secure wireless network is also available for encrypted access, authenticated with your AD credentials. Use of ClarksonSecure will connect you to your building's wired network, which provides access to on-campus resources, as well as the devices you have in your on-campus office or residence. Information on connecting to these networks can be found here:

If your office or dorm room is located in a building where pervasive wireless has been deployed, then you are NOT permitted to install your own wireless router, access point, or repeater. If you are experiencing a wireless coverage issue in a building listed above, please contact the IT HelpDesk for assistance.
If your office or dorm room is located in a building where pervasive wireless has not yet been deployed, then you are permitted to install your own wireless router in accordance with the Wireless Access Policy. However, you should be aware that you become responsible for any and all traffic that traverses your access point. It is strongly advised that you not allow your access point to be openly accessible. Instead, you should secure it by enabling encryption, password protection, and disabling the broadcast of its SSID. Ensure that your wireless router is correctly configured otherwise it will impact or prevent network access.
