Welcome to the Fall 2016 Semester! Please read below for important information regarding improvements to the CCSF WiFi system.
There is no longer a need to sign-up for WiFi service. Instead, you will use your RAM ID which is described here: http://www.ccsf.edu/en/employee-services/technology-services2/ram-id.html
Following is a description of the different WiFi signal names which are called SSIDs.
“CCSF Student” = New student-only service using RAM ID for access. Your RAM ID is your Student ID number along with your individual password. Note the system will ask for a one-time password (WPA Key) the first time you connect. The one-time password is “freewireless4all”.
“CCSF Staff” = New staff-only service using RAM ID for access. Your RAM ID is your network login ID along with your individual password. Note the system will ask for a one-time password (WPA Key) the first time you connect. The one-time password is “freewireless4all”.
“CCSF Wireless” will be turned off in December, 2016. (Returning students and staff can still use it until December, 2016)
"CCSF Guest" = Temporary service available at CCSF Centers
and public events.
Airport, Civic Center and Ft. Mason use "CCSF WiFi" = No RAM ID, only use the password (WPA Key) of "ccsframs".
