About the Network
The wireless network at Lesley is a centrally managed wireless network that offers a/n/ac connectivity to users in many locations across all three campuses. We offer a secured wireless environment for the convenience of our students, faculty, and staff. All networks require a Lesley username and password to gain access.
The wireless network in the residence halls is intended as an enhancement, not a replacement of the high speed hardwired networking infrastructure already in place for students. Usage is intended to support web browsing, instant messaging, mylesley, and other web services commonly used for furthering their education while here. High bandwidth applications such as gaming and streaming are supported, however we highly encourage the use of our wired network for better performance.
- This network is default and the most secure WiFi network on campus. Eduroam allows students, faculty and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop.
- This network is intended to be used by Guests who are visiting Lesley.
- This network is also intended to be used to download the eduroam installer for your device.
- This network is also intended to be used for registration of Browserless (IoT) Devices. Instructions can be found at https://support.lesley.edu/support/solutions/articles/4000145767-connecting-browserless-devices-to-the-lesley-network-iot-
- This network is for devices that can not use eduroam. This will mostly be IoT devices such as gaming systems and video steaming devices.

Privacy & Security
By its very nature, a wireless network is not as private and secure as the wired network we have in our offices, labs, and residence halls. The information you send across the wireless network travels through the air as radio waves and may be intercepted by anyone with the right tools.
Information Technology has taken measures to ensure a reasonable level of security and provide some privacy without making it difficult to use the wireless network. However, it is still up to each individual to protect themselves and their personal information.
