We're excited that you will be joining the Law School Community soon and congratulate you on being accepted to Santa Clara University School of Law.

Prerequisite. In order to get connected to SCU's student WiFi Network (eduroam), you must have already setup your MySCU portal account and Duo 2FA. When eduroam prompts you for credentials, then enter your full SCU email address (eg bbronco@scu.edu) and your MySCU password. Also, it may challenge via SCU's Duo 2FA system.

Step 1. Check to make sure you have an approved anti-virus application. Check here for a list of approved SCU anti-virus software. If you do, then go to Step 2. Otherwise, we recommend that you install an anti-virus software first before you install the policy key. 

If you have an approved Anti-Virus software, then skip this install. Santa Clara University requires that you have an anti-virus software install on your laptop to gain access to the campus WiFi network

Step 2. Now that you have have installed/verified an anti-virus software on your computer, you can now connect to SSID (eduroam) and complete your final setup below.

OnGuard will make sure your system is running up-to-date anti-virus/anti-malware software as well as modern up-to-date operating systems. Failing to install the OnGuard agent or not fixing issues OnGuard finds will result in loss of network access.
