Campus visitors are granted use of the Wellesley College network, including the wireless network, for a 24-hour period which can be renewed. Access, however, is limited to non-Wellesley websites due to licensing and security issues. If you need to access Wellesley College's online resources and cannot access them as a visitor, you may visit the Clapp Library and ask for help at one of our service desks.
Configuring Your Computer's Wireless Internet Connection
Please Note: Wellesley College is not able to provide computer troubleshooting assistance for visitors.
Accessing the Wireless Network & Renewing Visitor Access after 24 Hours
Wellesley College uses Cisco Clean Access to authenticate computers on the campus network. As a visitor on the network, after configuring your computer for our network, launch a web browser and go to any off-campus website, such as www.yahoo.com or www.google.com. Your browser will then be redirected to the Clean Access authentication page. In the left section of the page, scroll down and click the Visitor button. Access should be granted immediately for 24 hours, without additional requirements or restarting. Visitor access can be renewed for another 24 hours by repeating the above steps.
All persons using Wellesley College electronic resources are subject to Wellesley College policies including but not limited to the Responsible Use of Information Technology Resources Policy and the Wellesley College Copyright Policy . Failure to comply with these policies will result in denial of access to the Wellesley College network and electronic resources.
