Use Wireless and Library Computers

How do I connect to the wireless network in the Law Library and Law School building?

First Use Each Semester

  • Each semester, students who are have not previously registered their PC on the RWU computer registration system login will be prompted to begin the registration/remediation process when connecting to the Students1 wireless network.
  • The network security key needed in the registration process is posted in the library.
  • The registration is good for the entire semester.
  • Note: using the Students1 network instead of the RWUGuests network provides students with better bandwidth and improved security.  You will also need to be connected to the Students1 network for wireless printing and to use the secure exam software.


  • Open your Internet browser.
  • At the "Security Alert" screen, click <Yes>
  • Enter your e-mail login and password with RWU at the end of the password as your User name & Password and click "I accept terms of service." [Password example: js1111RWU]
  • Click "Log In."
