Campus Wireless Network Access

There are two wireless networks available in all on-campus housing, academic, and support buildings:

  • LC: This is the primary wireless network on campus.
  • eduroam: eduroam is a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

Either network can be used when on campus with a valid Lafayette NetID. Currently the College has more than 700 access points deployed across campus. The College is continuously evaluating and expanding capacity and coverage.

LC Wireless Network

The LC wireless network is for students, faculty, staff, and guests who have a valid NetID. It provides access to the Internet and Lafayette services based on user role.

To access the wireless network:

  1. Open the network settings on your device and select the "LC" network.
  2. Open a browser, which will redirect you to enter your NetID.
  3. Follow the on screen prompts.
