H-SC Wireless Network

Welcome to the Hampden-Sydney College Computing Center homepage for wireless access. Wireless access points have been installed in various locations around campus that enables anyone to connect to the Hampden-Sydney network with a compatible wireless device.

All public wireless access points made available by Hampden-Sydney are set to the SSID of HSCWiFi2 or HSCWiFi5. These SSID's require authentication with your H-SC username and password. Once you have connected to one of the campus wireless networks, a web browser will open and you will be directed to the H-SC Wireless Network login screen. On the left side of the screen you will need to enter your H-SC username and password (This is the same username and password that is used for campus e-mail) do not put "@hsc.edu". After successfully logging in, the web browser should then direct you to the requested web page. Guests can also connect to the campus wireless network by providing a valid e-mail address at the Guests login.

H-SC Wireless Login Screen


You will need an 802.11a/b/g/n/ac compatible wireless network card or device to obtain a wireless connection.  

Tips for best user experience:

- If HSCWiFi5 is visible on your device, it will generally provide the fastest network speeds; however, this SSID will not be
   visible on all devices
- If your default homepage uses HTTPS, you may need to change the address in the URL bar to a non-secure site such as
   www.hsc.edu to properly redirect to the H-SC Wireless Network login screen
