Computer Connections

Wireless Services

The NEC Wireless service (WIFI) allows people with portable/mobile technology devices to access the Internet without a wired connection.  Wireless service is available in the Residence Hall, Bistro 33, Spaulding and Firestone Libraries, the 3rd floor of the St. Botolph building, Pierce Hall and the Student Lounge in the Jordan Hall building.

The service has limited bandwidth that is shared amongst all users on campus.  As with all WIFI service, signal strengths may vary and fluctuate and service interruptions may occur. In an effort to offer service to everyone, we ask all users be considerate of other users and refrain from network-taxing services (i.e. torrents and file sharing, gaming, etc.). The service works best when used for basic Internet browsing and checking and sending e-mail. As with any WIFI source, please take extra precautions on what information and transactions you perform.

Student Computer Lab
