Wireless Networking (Wi-Fi)

Western Piedmont Community College provides numerous Wi-Fi hotspots throughout the main campus, Jim A. Richardson complex and the Foothills Higher Education Center including student lounges, common areas, and the Library. The College continues to expand the scope of wireless access. If a student wishes to use Wi-Fi on the main campus, he or she will need to have his/her laptop configured with an electronic certificate. This certificate will permit the student to log on to the wireless network, whenever they wish, using his/her assigned network username and password. Instructions for configuring a laptop to use the College’s electronic certificate can be found by clicking on the “Student Computing Accounts” link under the “Western Piedmont Online” section of the College’s homepage at www.wpcc.edu.
