Did you accidentally click on ConnSCU Guest?

  • You must FORGET ConnSCU Guest on your device in order for you to connect to ConnSCU.

Helpful hints:

  • When you change your password – please be sure to update that new password on every mobile device’s WiFi settings.
  • If you do not update your password on every device, it will very quickly lock you out of your account…
  • If you get locked out of the WiFi, it stays locked for 30 minutes – you can attempt again then, or see us in the Computer Center (X111)
  • If you have a Chromebook, and it says “out of range” – restart your computer – that seems to fix it.
