Wi-Fi Resources

On-Campus Wi-Fi

All Madison College students have access to secure network service through MC-Secure. Users will need to log in with a valid Madison College issued username and password. The Library created a great guide for laptop or phone users to connect to our network. 

Off-Campus Wi-Fi

Eduroam (education roaming) is a secure network service available to Madison College students. You can use your Madison College credentials at any Eduroam-enabled school and get instant network connectivity. This also means visitors from participating schools can get wireless network connectivity at Madison College campuses.
