Network Access

Wired Network (Green Wall Ports)

You must first register your computer (ie: laptop) with MSL IT.  You can stop by our office in room 227 with your computer or email us the MAC address of your network adaptor.  If you are unsure how to find out your MAC address please refer to this online tutorial.  Once registered you simply plug-in your computer using a network cable into any of the green labeled ports on the wall.  We can provide you with a cable if you need one. 

Note: Ports without a green label are not active and will not work.

Wireless Network (Wi-Fi)

There are two wireless networks on campus we recommend to use. 

  • UBCSECURE - available for all faculty, staff, or students requiring a Campus Wide Login (CWL). 
  • UBCVISITOR - Visitors to the campus who are not guests of UBC faculty or staff can use our visitor network for light web browsing at no charge.
  • EDUROAMThe "eduroam" network is a collaborative network that provides students, staff and faculty roaming wireless access at partner institutions
