Wireless Access

University of the Science is pleased to announce the expansion of wireless internet access on campus. All buildings now have wireless coverage. We are still in the process of fine-tuning the system for optimal coverage but, for the most part, you should be able to connect to wireless in every building. Personal wireless access points and routers are not permitted as they will not function properly and may cause problems for others. We welcome faculty, staff and students to use the wireless network and hope it will enhance your educational experience.


To use wireless internet access on campus, you will need to perform these steps:

  1. Get a wireless card - The University is supporting a wireless - 802.11B, 802.11G and 802.11N network. Wireless cards are now offered as built-in options on most laptops and other mobile devices. If you do not have this option, you can purchase one at a local computer store.
  2. Configure your card - Once you purchase your card follow the setup directions.
  3. Choose one of the following wireless networks and connect. There will be three viewable wireless networks:
    FacStaff-USciences
    Student-Usciences
    Guest-Usciences 
  4. Please connect to the appropriate network and authenticate using your usual username and password.
