The Shepherd wireless network is available to students, faculty and staff. The network is called registration.
It is available in all academic, administrative, common and residential buildings.
We are constantly trying to improve coverage, but there are some spots where there is not coverage or the coverage is weak. If you find a spot which has a weak connection or no coverage, please contact the IT Service Desk so we are aware of it.
Student owned laptops, tablets and smartphones must be registered to connect through our Wi-Fi network to the Internet. Personal devices are allowed access to the internet only. Windows systems require an active and up-to-date anti-virus system in order to pass the registration process.
Select the appropriate wireless client instructions below.
- Windows 7/8.1/10
- Windows Vista and 8.0 are not supported for use on our network. Microsoft dropped support for version 8.0 in early 2016 and Vista in April 2017.
