Wireless Networks on Campus

Wireless Networks on Campus

As a growing community, Hiram College offers three distinct wireless networks that students, faculty/staff, and guests can utilize while on campus. Each has specific attributes designed specifically for each group. It is important that everyone on our campus utilizes the correct network to ensure the best internet connection.


    Hiram-Secure is a network that is restricted to the use by faculty and staff only. In order to have access to this network, besides having permission to use it, you must configure it on your device. If it is not already configured please follow the documentation below for set up:


    Hiram-Student is a network designed specifically for our enrolled students on campus and our weekend college students. This requires no configuration on the students machine as the network will be automatically detected. The student is required to have a valid Hiramnet username and password in order to log onto this network.


    Hiram-Guest is our network specifically designated for guests to use when they visit Hiram. It is an open network (no configuration required) but has a 2 hour limit. After this 2 hour period you will be “kicked off” the guest network. You will be required to return to the login page where you will have to press the link that allows you to login to the guest network. Hiram-Guest also has restricted bandwidth that will limit the speed of this wireless network.
