Wireless Access

The college provides a robust wireless network that supports access with  personally-owned devices.

VWCCWiFi

Students, VWCC and VCCS faculty, and staff using personally-owned devices can sign on to the VWCCWiFi network with their MyVWCC username and password.

Detailed instructions can be found here. These instructions are also available on campus by connecting to the VWCCHowToConnect wireless.

VWCCGuest

VWCCGuest is our wifi network for campus visitors that do not have a MyVWCC username and password. Guest access can be obtained by any employee making a request to the Help Desk.

Greenfield Location

VWCC has limited wireless coverage at the Greenfield center. The instructions for connectivity are the same with the only difference being the names have GF in them as in VWCCGFWiFi and GFGuest.
