Wireless Networks

Berry College has three different wireless networks available for use on campus. Each of these networks fulfills a specific purpose.


“Berry” is the secured WiFi network available to students, faculty, and staff**. Information sent over this network is protected by the highest levels of encryption. This network also has access to the greatest amount of bandwidth, making it considerably faster than the other two networks. Students, faculty, and staff should use this network. Please scroll down for instructions for your particular device.

**Access to this network requires your Active Directory credentials. Your Active Directory username is the first part of your email address. (For example, if your email address is jsmith@berry.edu or john.smith@vikings.berry.edu, your Active Directory username is jsmith or john.smith, respectively.) These credentials are used for campus WiFi, campus computer login, and campus printing. You can reset your Active Directory password at react.berry.edu.


BerryGuest is an open network available to guests of the college. BerryGuest has no authentication or encryption, so information sent over this network is not as protected as information sent over “Berry” or wired Ethernet connections. Students, faculty, staff should use “Berry” instead of "BerryGuest”.


"BerryEZConnect" is designed for devices that need wireless internet access but don’t support the encryption required by the “Berry” network. Some examples of devices that can connect to this network include Microsoft Xbox, Sony Playstation, and Apple TV systems. EZConnect passwords are sent out to all students at the beginning of the academic year. If you do not remember receiving one, please search your email (including deleted items) for the phrase "PSK." The email is sent from "HiveManager@berry.edu." For faculty and staff requiring EZConnect access, please email computing@berry.edu with your name and ID number.

If your particular device cannot connect to this network or “Berry," please contact the Technical Support Desk at 706-238-5838 or computing@berry.edu for assistance.

*Please be aware that if you add your printer to the wireless network, it will be available to anyone who connects to the network. You should power off your printer when not in use to avoid inadvertent or unauthorized print jobs.

Please note: Personally owned WiFi routers are not permitted on campus.
