Residence Hall Internet
MVCC Residence Halls are pleased to provide a robust wireless WiFi for the students.
Where does the wireless cover? All rooms, lounges, public areas and even the exterior quad of the Residence Halls are wireless.
How do I get a wireless access code? Upon arrival, you will be given your own wireless access code that will provide your internet access for the entire semester. Due to the security of the access codes, codes are only given out during major check-in's. If you did not get a code at check-in, please visit the Residence Life Office in the Alumni College Center Room 208.
How do I activate my wireless? When you are in the Residence Halls, simply search for available wifi and find mvcchousing_wifi. Once selected, you will be connected to a landing page that will include the College calendar, student handbook, local weather and a tutorial. Simply press connect and you will be asked for your access code. Input it and when you are directed to the MVCC website, after agreeing to the acceptable use policy, your internet is active.
How many devices are allowed? Each student has personal speed of 7mb up and 7mb down. Each student may connect up to three personal devices with their access code.
Can I add a browserless device such as a game system? Yes, but because it is browserless and can't go to a landing page, you would contact the 24/7 tech support line at 1-866-536-7676 and hit prompt #1. You will need the mac address of the device you are adding. If you need assistance with finding that, tech support will assist you.
Can I upgrade? Those students who wish to increase their speed to 10 mb up and 10 mb down OR register 5 devices instead of 3 may upgrade to PREMIUM SERVICE for $49.95 per semester. That rate is prorated down if you upgrade at or after mid-term. To upgrade, simply type upgrade.com into your browser and you will be directed to input your debit or credit card and create a new user name and password.
Can I use a personal router? No, they are not allowed as they interfere with the system.
