Please note: The IT Support Center does not provide support for personal mobile devices like tablets and smartphones. The instructions below are provided as a resource to students and employees who wish to set up their own devices.

The staff at the IT Support Center cannot set up these devices; however, they can assist when there may be an issue with your network and/or e-mail password. Keep in mind that you can reset your own network password and reset your own e-mail password.

There are two ways you can set up your Android device on the wireless network. You can use XpressConnect if you have an existing network connection, or you can set it up manually.
