Wireless Access and Signal Strength

Wireless Access

Wireless access is available through the UMMS, ummhc@umw, UMASSMED-GUEST, and eduroam wireless networks.

  • To access the UMMS or ummhc@umw wireless networks, you must have a Medical School or Clinical (UMMHC) system network account. Through these networks, University students, faculty and staff will receive robust access to internal UMMS network resources.
  • The UMASSMED-GUEST wireless network provides non-encrypted internet access for guests. The guest network is separate from the UMMS or UMW networks and firewalled to protect school resources. This network is intended for guests of the medical school only.
  • Visitors from participating EDUROAM institutions may use the eduroam network by logging in with their respective institution’s credentials.

Signal Strength

Due to the access point locations, book stacks, and thick library walls, signal strength is the strongest on the library's first floor. The signal is the weakest on the second and third floors along the outer walls. If you are experiencing problems with the wireless network, please report the problem to the library staff.
