How can I access the Northwood wireless network?

  1. Search for the northwood SSID wireless connection on your mobile, laptop, or tablet
  2. Open an internet browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari, etc)

  4. Choose Agree
  5. Choose Guests (24 hour access) - Start>>
  6. Enter your information into the Guest Self Registration form
  7. Choose Request Guest Access
  8. An assigned username and password will auto-populate, and an email from Northwood WiFi will also be sent with credentials
