Follow these steps to connect your Computer to the SSU network

  3. To connect with a smartphone or tablet, please refer to your device manufacturer’s documentation for instructions on how to connect your device to Wi-Fi. Connect to the Wi-Fi network that corresponds to your building (ex. UC-East for University Center).

  5. Enter your guest account username and password in the box on the left, and then choose “Guest” from the drop-down box. Click “Log In”. The guest account username and password will be provided by UIS.
