LUC Wireless Network

Secure Wi-Fi Access

LUC is a secure wireless network providing access to campus resources for all users with valid UVIDs and passwords. Only 802.1X-capable devices will work on LUC. Use this network for all official University business when you are on a campus wireless connection. Windows Vista and later, Mac OS 10.4+, and recent versions of Linux/Unix should all work on this network. Most mobile devices with WiFi will also work. 

What is 802.1x?

802.1x is an authentication framework for wireless network access. It enables Loyola’s networks to automatically identify endpoint devices and place them into an appropriate network and security context. 802.1x authentication enables wireless encryption and is the recommended method for connecting to campus wireless networks. Encryption allows faculty and staff access to secure resources without requiring Loyola Secure Access (LSA).  (Students are still required to use Loyola Secure Access - LSA.)

When searching for available networks, choose ‘LUC’.
