Wireless provided to faculty and staff users within the academic classrooms and study areas. The SDSUFacStaff network provides this connectivity.

Students

Student wireless is accessed through the SDSUStudent network. Students, once accepted, will be contacted by the admissions office with their account name and temporary password. This network provides access throughout the resident halls, academic classrooms and study areas. Students connecting to this network must have an active student account.

The campus also offers " eduroam " access within the campus and at selected remote sites. The " eduroam " network allows visiting members from other universities to connect to it with the credentials of their home institution. Their home institution must be a member of the "eduroam" initiative
