Internet and Computer Access

We offer FREE access to basic Wi-Fi service and Microsoft Office 365 on campus.

Computer Facilities

Providence has a variety of computer facilities available on campus. Students have access to the main computer lab near the library, Seminary students have access to a small lab on the Seminary floor and there are research stations in the library for all students. Lab and library computers have the latest version of Microsoft Office and laser printers are available in those locations.

Network Login Account

Access to the campus network requires a network login account. The IDs and passwords are generated and emailed to students automatically after the student is registered for classes. If you have not received this email it is possible that the Registrar’s Office does not have your correct email. Please visit the Registrar’s Office in the Welcome Centre and give them your correct email address so that we can send you your login details. For assistance with your login account, please come to the IT Department on the first floor, across from the Student Life offices.

Wi-fi Device Registration

  1. Use the Providence Wi-Fi hotspot called "Campus", which is available throughout the campus. It requires a password to connect, which is "Providence".
  2. Register your device at by logging in with your network login ID and password, following on-screen instructions.

Registration of each device is required in order to mitigate problems with virus-infected devices, which can severely disrupt the network.
