Wireless Networking

Secure wireless is available at all Vancouver Island University campuses using either the viu-secure or s-wisp wireless connections. Data transmitted over these secure wireless connections 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 wireless, you must be a currently enrolled student with a Discovery account, or an employee with a Capitan account.
