Connecting to the 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.
