Wireless Network Instructions for Guests
Guests on Samford’s campus may connect to the Samford Guest network. Connection requires completion of online form, and provides a temporary username and password sent via email or text message.
Devices Must Support WPA2 Authentication
Samford uses an enterprise class wireless network that requires authentication. Not all devices support the authentication. Examples include certain e-readers (Nook and Kindle—Kindle Fire can connect), wireless printers and netbooks running certain Linux based Operating Systems. We suggest you ensure support for the WPA2 authentication method before purchasing a new device for on-campus use.
