North Shore Community College

NSCC's Wireless Network

The North Shore Community College wireless network is comprised of over 150 secure wireless access points that provide coverage to nearly every part of NSCC’s three campuses.

Our wireless network provides a secure internet connection for a range of devices including tablets, smart phones and laptops.

In addition to having to connect to the network via a shared password, our network also requires users to authenticate via their campus Pipeline username and password. This extra level of authentication provides added security to our wireless network and allows the college to provide access to various network systems based on whether the user is a guest, student or employee.

Students and employees at NSCC have unfiltered access to the internet to allow for the freedom of academic pursuits. “Guests” who do not have a Campus Pipeline account are allowed content filtered access to the web. Gambling and adult sites are among the types of content that are filtered for guests.

Instructions to Access the Wireless Network

  • The NSCC wireless network name is NSCCwireless
  • The network password is: northshore
  • The network password is NOT your Pipeline password
