GET UP AND DO SOMETHING!
The University of Colorado at Colorado Springs wireless environment is composed of over 1,400 access points, allowing for easy Internet access from any building on campus. Access is permitted to all students, faculty, staff, and guests of the university. Different access levels with different security requirements are provided through a number of different wireless networks. In order to gain full access to the UCCS-Wireless network, an account is required. For students, faculty, and staff, your UCCS login and password are what you will use to log on to the network. If you are a guest, you can create a temporary account using the UCCS-Guest network. Alternatively, guest accounts can be requested from the computing services service desk, located on the first floor of the El Pomar Center, located underneath the clock tower.
