eduroam is a secure and encrypted wireless network available to Calvin College students, faculty, and staff. A Calvin email address and passphrase is required to connect to eduroam.

Guest is an open public wireless network available to guests and visitors. As this Internet access is intended for campus guests, not all campus Internet services are available through guest access. The Guest network requires registration every 7 days.

Wireless Bleed

If you are near one of the available wireless locations, you may experience wireless bleed from a nearby access point. That means your wireless-ready device may see a wireless network, but the signal may not be strong enough to make a reliable connection. This may also happen in some classrooms.

Responsible Use of Technology

As with any technology on campus, you are expected to adhere to Calvin's Policy on Responsible Use of Technology. In addition, please see Appendix A: Statement on Wireless Networking Devices.
