How Can I Access It?  

Personal Devices

As of May 2024, you no longer need to install ClearPass OnGuard to successfully connect a personal computer to the wired network on campus. Plug in your computer, and you can access the internet. 

You can also connect streaming devices, like gaming consoles and smart devices, to the wired network, though you'll need to register them first at rowan.edu/device (while on-campus). For help, review our article on connecting streaming devices.


Rowan-Managed Devices

Rowan-managed devices will automatically connect to the wired network once plugged in.
