JWU's On-Campus Network

JWU IT works continually to keep JWU's network secure and available for everyone. The network supports our computers, internet, printing, telephones and much more.

Securing our Network

JWU utilizes a network access and validation security system called JWU Network Access to prevent unauthorized computers from accessing the JWU network. This ensures a safe, secure and reliable network for you, on Resnet or wireless.

Protecting Your Computer

Due to increasing virus and worm outbreaks, it is recommended that you take steps to protect your computer before you use the JWU network. This keeps your computer and the JWU network safe and secure.
