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.
  • Staff@LC: This network is only for students and staff using college-owned laptops.
  • Guest@LC: This network is for guests, presenters and the public.

Note: If you wish to access Guest@LC, you must visit the Buchanan Library (CE1340) or the Help Desk (TE2208) to have an account created before following the steps at the bottom of the page.
