Network Access

From Residence Halls

Start your computer and log on (login) to the network using your PC's password. You will have access to MyArcadia, the internet and your Arcadia University Gmail account, but not to software installed on networked computers.

The first time you access Arcadia's network you will be required to register your computer. The Campus Network Manager will appear when you open your browser. You will be guided through the registration process. You must register to use Arcadia's network.

Access From Networked Campus PCs
Press <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Delete> to log on to the network.

Enter your username and password. You will have access to AUWIFI, the internet, your email account, as well as software installed on networked computers.

Don't Forget to Log Off
Press <Ctrl> + <Alt> + <Delete> to log off of the network.

It is important to log off (logout) the network when you are finished using a PC. Logging off ensures that no one else can use the network using your identity.
