We now have two levels of access to our Local Area Network (LAN) through wireless connection, Valencia-Guest Access and Valencia-Secure Access.

Valencia-Guest is accessible with your unm email address username.  It is unsecure and there is no encryption with access to internet resources.

Valencia-Secure Access is secure and encrypted with full access to internet and authenticated LAN resources. It is accessible with your Valencia Campus username and password and with a few required settings configured on your mobile device.
