University of Southern California

Connecting with USCnet, USC Wireless, and Internet Service Providers

The university provides the following options for connecting to the USC computer network from on and off campus.

USCNet

USCNet is the university’s high speed network available in university facilities. Faculty and staff may register their office computers for use with USCNet.

To access USCNet from the Norris Cancer Center, Doheny Eye Institute or University Hospital, contact your computer support group for help.

Wireless

Wireless access is provided in the common areas of the Health Sciences Campus, including the quad, cafeteria, Norris Medical Library, Center for Health Professionals, student areas of the Keck School of Medicine, and other areas. Access to USC's wireless network is free to all users; no account is required. Users are strongly recommended using VPN for security. However, when accessing Norris Medical Library's online resources, do not use VPN. See Accessing licensed eResources for more details.

The library's Technology Support Center helps laptop users in connecting to the USC wireless network.

Connecting to USC through an outside Internet Service Provider

Once you have established a connection through your Internet Service Provider, then you can access USC library licensed electronic resources through the remote access portal.  See Accessing licensed eResources for more details.

Dialup Modems (PPP)

As of June 30, 2009, the university no longer provides dialup access through PPP.
