Pepperdine Wireless Network
Pepperdine University has wired and wireless networking capabilities in most areas of all its Southern California campuses. The wireless network provides the features and benefits of a traditional network without the limitations of wires or cables. It gives students the freedom to move around the campus while maintaining an active Internet connection. Students can conduct research, download homework, and check email whenever they are in a wireless location.

Rules of Wireless
Wireless Printers and Personal Access Points are Prohibited
Wireless printers, personal wireless access points, and wired or wireless routers are prohibited at all campuses and student residences (Seaver and Drescher student residences and the Page Apartments) with wireless coverage.
The presence of these devices interfere with the Pepperdine wireless signal. Extending Pepperdine networks to unregistered clients reduces security of the network. Routers also lead to service outages when misconfigured. When discovered, these devices will be shut down.
