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” = 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”. Authentication is required every 30 days.  

“CCSF Staff” = 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”. Authentication is required every 30 days.  

"CCSF Guest" = Basic Internet service available at the Ocean Campus and major CCSF Centers. Requires acceptance of the CCSF Computer Usage Policy. No login or password required. Authentication is required every 24 hours.

Airport, Civic Center and Ft. Mason use "CCSF WiFi" = No RAM ID, only use the password (WPA Key) of "ccsframs".
