Student Registration

Students may register for wireless LAN service in one of two ways:

Customer OnLine Access (COLA)

The Student Manager in the Customer OnLine Access (COLA) website gives you the option of activating or deactivating your wireless service. You must have a valid, active, university Personal Identifier (PID) and be enrolled in or registered for classes to register for the service.

Student Network Services

You may also register by visiting the Student Network Services office. Your Student ID (Hokie Passport) is required to register.

Faculty/Staff Registration

Departmental Orders

Departmental orders should be submitted on an Interdepartmental Communications Request (ICR). Each wireless LAN service request must include the PID and name of the user. The wired Ethernet portal number (e.g. McBryde 210TP12A) of the user's desktop network connection to be associated with the wireless LAN service must also be included.

Departmental requests for wireless network service for users who do not have wired Ethernet connections should also be placed via an ICR. Fees for wireless network service only include an order processing fee of $20.00 and a monthly fee of $10.

Forms can be submitted to Customer Support Services in person at Communications Network Services (CNS). CNS's offices are open from 8am to 5pm and are located at 1770 Forecast Drive, in the Corporate Research Center. You may also send the form via campus mail (Mail Code 0506).

Department requests for Guest Wireless Sponsorships need to fill out this form.

Personal Orders

Faculty, staff, alumni, retirees, and other non-student private Virginia Tech affiliates may register for personally paid wireless LAN service using the PDF form. Fees for wireless network service only include an order processing fee of $20.00 and a monthly fee of $15.00. You must have a valid, active, university Personal Identifier (PID) to register for the service.

You may return the form to Customer Support Services in person at Communications Network Services (CNS). CNS's offices are open from 8am to 5pm and are located at 1770 Forecast Drive, in the Corporate Research Center. You may also send the form via campus mail (Mail Code 0506).

Guest Registration

Guest access is arranged through a sponsoring department. If you are visiting Virginia Tech on business and would like guest access to the wireless network, please contact the department Network Liaison.
