Wireless Connect


Loyola's wireless networks provide secure, mobile Internet access for faculty, staff, and students as well as visitors and guests from wireless access points located throughout the Lake Shore and Water Tower and Health Sciences campuses. Users can connect to Loyola's wireless networks from a laptop, smartphone, or other mobile device using wireless access points conveniently located in campus buildings, residence halls and public spaces.

To get connected, use the links below. 

Students, Faculty, and Staff

Students Faculty and Staff should use the 'LUC' wireless network.  This network is for those with an active Loyola UVID and password. There are multiple guides on the Students Faculty and Staff page for connecting with different operating systems.  To access this network connect your device to the LUC network, enter your UVID and password and if your device is not registered you will need to register it. Visit https://www.luc.edu/its/service/studentsupport/ for more info on this process. 

Please note, when you change your password for your Loyola ID, you will also need to update the password on all your wireless devices.  Since the LUC wireless network uses your Loyola ID and password for authentication, you will need to update it to avoid being locked out of your account.

Visitors and Guests

Visitors and Guests should use the 'LUC-Guest' wireless network  This network is for those visiting the Loyola Campus temporarily. Guest accounts are limited to 72 hours, but are available to any visitor to Loyola from any Wireless Access Point on campus.

Gaming Consoles, TVs, Printers, and other Devices

Students Faculty and Staff needing to register devices that do not support the new security features supported by the 'LUC' wireless network should use the 'LUC-TV-Printer-Games-Misc' wireless network (formerly LUC-devices).  Users will need an active Loyola UVID and password.  Devices that fall into this category are most gaming consoles and streaming devices.
