Wireless Network Access Policy
The City College provides wireless network access to all active students,
faculty, staff and authorized guests. Users can log in to CCNY’s wireless
network using their CCNY email id and password. Users must adhere to the
CUNY Computer Users Responsibilities policy
, as well as this CCNY Wireless Network Access Policy.
In order to connect to the wireless network, a properly configured
wireless 802.11b/g network adapter is needed. The CCNY wireless network
works with most laptops and many PDAs that support standard protocols
with no additional hardware or software. To see instructions on
configuring your computer to use the wireless network on campus, go to
Printing at public student printers from the wireless network is not
provided at this time. To print, students must log on to one of the
computers in the public labs.
Users are expected to secure their machines when they are using wireless
network services. Computers must have active antivirus software.
Antivirus signature files and operating system security patches must be
kept up to date. We reserve the right to block or disconnect
non-compliant computers from the CCNY wireless network. Users using
the wireless network should also use secure remote access procedures,
i.e., passwords should never be disclosed to anyone or shared.
Secure Wireless network services supported are email, CUNY portal
services, and BlackBoard. In addition to these, Hummingbird and
mainframe network access services are supported for faculty/staff.
Those who need advice before purchasing any wireless hardware or
software, or are having difficulty connecting to the wireless network,
may contact the IT Helpdesk in NAC 1/506, (212) 650-7878.
CCNY is not liable for the consequences of wireless network
use in any way, including the transmission of computer viruses, loss
of data or e-mail, or any harm resulting from the use of an unsecured
network server or network access point.
