Wireless Project - Using Your Own Laptop

Using Your Own Laptop on the Wireless Network

Western's students and faculty are encouraged to add a wireless networking card to their own PC or Mac.  As the campus wireless network expands you will find the convenience and easy use it brings will make this modest investment worthwhile. 

A number of wireless network cards have been tested for use with a variety of laptop computers.  For a listing of tested wireless cards and information about using your own computer on the network pickup an information sheet for your PC or Mac at the Wilson Circulation Desk or contact the ATUS Help Desk at 650-3333.

Network Cables for Your Laptop

Data cables which can be used at a limited number of locations in Haggard Hall to plug your laptop into a data jack can be checked out at the Main Circulation Desk on Haggard 2.  Users will need a valid Western Card.  These cables provide your laptop with fast reliable access to all of the resources you expect to find on the typical public access computer in the library - as well as access to the internet.  Users are expected to adhere to the guidelines spelled out in the university's Policy for Responsible Computing. 

Printing from Laptops, Tablets or Smart Phones

You can print from your laptop and other mobile devices, including phones and tablets, by going to https://evprint.wwu.edu.

Once there, follow these instructions from ATUS:

  • Log in using your universal ID and password
  • Prints will be charged to your WWU Print Balance
  • An EveryonePrint sign identifies available printers
  • Use the Print Release Station near the printer to release your prints

The Everyone Print station in the library is located on the Skybridge connecting the Haggard and Wilson sides of the library.
