About the Wireless Network at Berea College

General Information:

There are four different wireless networks available on campus, two are available from most classroom and administrative buildings on campus and two are available only in the residence halls.

Please be aware that not all devices will be able to connect to all of these wireless networks. Some devices designed primarily for use in the home (Roku, Apple TV, Kindle e-ink devices, etc.) do not support enterprise-level wireless security protocols, so they will not be able to access the BereaSecure or ResNetSecure wireless networks. We provide wireless networks specifically for use with these devices in locations across campus.

* Please also keep in mind that wireless networks are not as reliable or stable as wired networks even in the best of circumstance are not as fast as a wired connection. If you are in an area of high utilization or radio frequency interference, or if you are far from the nearest access point, you may experience intermittent slowness and/or decreased performance.
