We’ve developed three wireless networks with intuitive names, enhanced security and ease of use to support your connectivity needs:

  • Students@LC: This network is for both students and staff using personal devices on campus, including all smartphones and tablets.
  • Staff@LC: This network is only for students and staff using college-issued laptops (Mac or PC).
  • Guest@LC: This network is for guests, presenters and the public.

Configuring your device

When using your device for the first time at the college, you may have to manually connect to the wireless network. Once configured, your device will automatically connect to the wireless network each time you are on campus.

          Connecting to Guest@LC
          1. On your device, navigate to the appropriate screen where a list of available wireless networks is shown.
          2. Select Guest@LC and you will automatically be connected.

          Please note: this is a slower and less secure network suitable for visitors to campus. If you have a Lethbridge College account, it is better to use the Staff@LC or Students@LC network as described at the top of this page.
