Using Wi-Fi

General Wi-Fi Information

MCC offers a free on-campus Wi-Fi service to students and staff. Once you follow the initial log in instructions, you may connect from any building on campus and select outdoor areas including the patios and the grassy area between the café and Building E.

  • What are the Wi-Fi restrictions?

    The Wi-Fi networks are intended for educational use therefore, downloads of .mp3, .exe and .zip files are restricted and sites are content-filtered.

  • Can MCC staff help me configure my computer?

    No, but we can offer some helpful tips (see the below “How do I connect to the wireless at MCC”). Every device is different, and you are responsible for knowing how to configure your own device and for any changes you make to your computer's settings. MCC cannot be responsible for any changes you make to your computer's settings, or for any consequences of changes you make to your computer's settings. MCC staff cannot assist you in making changes.
