Citadel Wireless Service

Wireless Service allows members of The Citadel Community (students, faculty and staff) with a laptop and an appropriate wireless network card to access the campus network and the Internet from areas around campus where wireless has been installed and activated.

To offer the potential benefits of this service to The Citadel community, ITS Network Operations and Security (NOS) is in the process of deploying a campus-wide wireless network.

To utilize this service, your Laptop or PDA device must be configured with a wireless card or have built-in wireless capability that supports the IEEE 802.11b or 802.11g wireless standards. Your device must also be able to open web pages for authentication using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption.


Wireless is expanding but is presently limited to a few areas of campus; read more here: Campus Wireless Information.
