Wireless Network FAQ
Phoenix College owned devices should automatically connect to the secure campus Wi-Fi network (PCSecure) without the need for a username and password while on campus. If your system is having trouble connecting, please contact the Help Desk.
Phoenix College currently offers two wireless networks available to all students, faculty, staff, and guests for their personal devices. These are the wireless networks available at Phoenix College:
- Maricopa: Open network; no encryption; intended for guest use
- Eduroam: Credentials from an eduroam participating institution required; encrypted; full access for Student/Staff use
If you have an MEID and password or other credentials from an eduroam participating institution, we recommend that you connect to Eduroam. If you are a guest on campus, you should connect to the Maricopa network.
Connecting to Eduroam Wi-Fi Network:
