Wireless Self Registration

View device registration instructions in the ITS Knowledge Base or download device registration instructions as a PDF. 

If you currently live on campus, you will be able to use the online portal to register any supported devices. Computers and mobile devices should be able to connect to the LMU-Wireless network using your LMU username and password. Other devices (televisions, gaming systems, set-top boxes) will require registration. 

For devices that cannot connect to LMU Wireless, please register your device.

Ethernet (hardwired) ports in the residence halls are activated by request.  Please use the form below to submit that request (allow 1-3 business days for activation). You will be prompted to log in to Service Now using your LMU credentials in order to complete the form. 

Before using a network switch to plug in multiple devices, contact the ITS Service Desk at servicedesk@lmu.edu or 310.338.7777.

Connect to LMU or LLS Wireless

  • 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.
