Security Considerations
The nature of wireless networks is they allow users to connect to the network by use of radio signals which are broadcasted to all recipients in their local area. This makes it easy for any third party to intercept network traffic intended for, or generated by, someone other than themselves. Wireless users should be aware of this and make every effort to keep their communications secure. Please do not relay any personal information over an unsecured network such as the guest wireless network.

It is strongly recommended that OCU students, faculty, and staff configure their wireless devices to use the encrypted and more secure wireless network as opposed to this guest wireless network.
Connecting to the Guest Wireless Network
  1. “GuestOCU” is the broadcasted SSID for the guest wireless network. Have your computer or handheld device connect to this service.
  2. Open a web browser to see the login page. Follow the instructions to have a username and password sent to you via email or text message.
  3. Use the credentials sent to you to authenticate to the guest wireless.
  4. That’s it! You are now on the guest wireless network.
