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.


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. In some cases, use of ClarksonSecure will also provide elevated access to some on-campus resources. 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 access point. 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 access point 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.
