Welcome to Wireless Access at Simpson College
Before connecting to the campus network:
- Make sure your computer has the latest operating system updates.
- Your computer MUST have an antivirus program. If you do not have an antivirus program, we will provide Kaspersky anti virus for you at not additional cost for as long as you are a student at Simpson. You can install it during the network connection process.
To complete connecting to the campus network:
- Connect to the student wireless network using the same username and password that you use to access your student email. Instructions for the specific devices, computers and phones can be found below:
- Once you are on the student wireless network and open a web browser on your computer, you will be directed to a SafeConnect web page. You will be able to download the SafeConnect program to fully connect to our campus residential network and technology resources. You will also have an option to download Kaspersky antivirus. Instructions for SafeConnect can be found below:
- Use an Ethernet cable to have a faster and more reliable physical connection to the network. This will provide a better connection when you need to take a test or complete other high stakes activity
