Law School Network & Infrastructure

  • Faculty, Staff, and Students

    Please note, as of Fall 2020, you need to be on Mac OS/iOS version 10.13 or higher to connect to LMU-Wireless.

    Both the Westchester campus and Loyola Law School now have the same wireless network SSID, LMU-Wireless. This means that once you have connected to the network on one campus, you will connect seamlessly to the network if you visit the other campus—perfect for faculty and staff who may have to travel between campuses to teach or attend meetings, and for students who attend classes on both campuses, or use both facilities.

    Connecting to the LMU-Wireless network is quite simple. In most cases, you just need to log into the network using your LMU or LLS username and password. You may be asked to accept a security certificate as well. This is normal and expected.

    If you need help connecting to a specific device, you can find step-by-step instructions on the pages linked below.
