Secure Wireless Access

Waubonsee's secure wireless network provides fast, secure and easy-to-use Internet access at Waubonsee's four campuses, including Sugar Grove (all buildings), Aurora, Copley and Plano. Please remember that the wireless network is a shared resource, meaning your actions affect others on the network. By following our wireless networking guidelines (PDF), you can help make our wireless network a great service for everyone.

Available Wireless Network Groups (SSID's):

  • WCC-Students
  • WCC-Faculty-Staff
  • WCC-Guest

Students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use WCC-Students and WCC-Faculty-Staff respectively, logging in with their X-number and mywcc/network password.  Campus guests who wish to utilize an open wireless Internet connection may use WCC-Guest.
