Join the New Fordhamwifi Network

Fordham IT recently enhanced the security of the wireless networks at the Rose Hill, Lincoln Center, and Westchester campuses by adding new Service Set IDentifiers (SSIDs) to the current list of wireless networks on each individual campus. In order to simplify the SSIDs for all campuses, we have now condensed all SSIDs into one main identifier for all campuses. In other words, the wifi networks on each campus all share the same name and password. This network will use the WiFi Protected Access II (WPA2) protocol and requires a key (password) to encrypt your wireless network traffic.

To access the secure wireless network, simply select the following available wireless network and enter the WPA2 Key when prompted for a password:

WPA2 key
All Campuses

The following links contain more information on how to connect to and configure your wireless access:


Windows XP/7

Please note the existing unsecured and secured wireless networks, FORDHAMRH, FORDHAMLC and FORDHAM400 and their -S counter parts will remain active and available only until May 1st, 2014.

If you are unable to connect to a WPA2 network, make sure you update all network drivers to the latest versions. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact IT Customer Care at 718-817-3999 or via e-mail to For the most current information about service-related issues, follow ITCC on Twitter: @FordhamITUpdate.
