Wireless

Law IT provides wireless service to students, faculty, staff, and visitors at Columbia Law School.

Wi-Fi access is available to everyone, including visitors, throughout all law school buildings by simply selecting the open network “Columbia Law” on your device. 

Our commitment to offer high-speed Wi-Fi network and Internet access for capable devices for all Columbia Law School buildings remains our highest priority.  By rebranding the wireless access points, and by increasing our wireless infrastructure capacity and capabilities, we believe that we are providing our faculty, students, and staff with the best Wi-FI services available to the market today. We hope you find this information useful, and we look forward to assisting you with your wireless networking needs.

  • Ensure your device is attempting to connect to the Columbia Law network .

  • When you connect to a new Wi-Fi network it is added and stored in a list of profiles. Over a period of time, the list can become large and degrade wireless performance. If you are unable to connect to your wireless network after changing settings such as the password, deleting your wireless network may resolve this issue. It is also a good practice to remove any wireless networks you are no longer using so that you can find your frequently used wireless networks easier. Please visit How do I Forget a Wi-Fi Profile for instructions on deleting a wireless profile that is no longer needed.

  • 
If you are unable to connect to Columbia Law, try resetting your connection by turning off your Wi-Fi, waiting 15 seconds, and turning back on your Wi-Fi. Please note that it may take a couple of seconds to re-connect.


  • If trouble persists, please contact us or visit the walk-in Helpdesk in JG 731.
