Wireless SSID Changes

The Networking Department within IT Services has been working hard over the last two years to upgrade all of the wireless access points throughout the campus. This includes both dorm and academic spaces.

The wireless upgrades were completed on Thursday, September 5, 2019. These new wireless access points are faster, more reliable, and much stronger than the previous wireless access points that were installed. Because of these vast improvements, ITS will be changing the wireless SSIDs that are currently being broadcasted throughout campus.

Currently, Manhattan College community members have the option to connect to one of three wireless SSID networks: Jaspernet-legacy, Jaspernet, or Jaspernet5. Starting on Friday, September 20, 2019 at 6AM, the only wireless network that will be broadcasted will be Jaspernet.

If your device is configured to automatically connect to Jaspernet-legacy or Jaspernet5, you will need to configure your device to automatically connect to Jaspernet instead. If your device was already configured to automatically connect to the Jaspernet wireless network, you will not need to make any changes.

If you have any questions or need help connecting your device to Jaspernet wireless network, you can contact ITS at 718-862-7973 or via email at
