BYOD Portal

BYOD Self-service portal

 

The Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) self-service portal allows students to add up to 5 of their personal devices to the campus wifi that do not support username authentication, such as Smart TV's and gaming consoles.

Please note that the BYOD portal is only accessible from the campus network, including the Campus WiFi or Computer Labs. You can connect to the wifi named "Viking" from a computer or phone by entering your VikingOne username and password, and then after adding a device like a smart TV in the BYOD portal, you can then connect your smart TV to the wifi named "BYOD".
