Please read below for important information regarding improvements to the CCSF WiFi system.

NOTE: Before you can connect to the WiFi network, you MUST have your working RAM ID credentials ready.

There is no longer a need to sign-up for WiFi service. Instead, you will use your RAM ID credentilas 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 (e.g. W00000000 or @00000000) along with your RAM ID 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 (e.g. jsmith) along with your RAM ID 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, just open a web browser and try to navigate somewhere, on the next page just click Continue to the Internet. Authentication is required every 24 hours.

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