Wireless Networking

S-WISP (Secure WISP) is available at all Vancouver Island University campuses. Data transmitted over S-WISP is encrypted, securing it during network transit. This is important if you use wireless networking for confidential transactions such as accessing your student record, online banking, and online shopping by credit card.

To access S-WISP, you must be a currently enrolled student with a Discovery account, or an employee with a Capitan account.

You need to be logged in to your mobile device before using S-WISP
