HWS Credentials

Each HWS network user has an account login ID and password, or HWS credentials. HWS credentials are used to access the HWS network and resources such as file share, e-mail, online learning management software, IT service requests, and much more.

Intercollegiate Wireless Service (Eduroam)

Eduroam (education roaming) is a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. Eduroam allows students, researchers, and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across participating campuses on their devices.

Internet Access

The HWS campus provides three for students, staff, faculty, and a public network for the community and certain devices (gaming consoles, smart TVs, other smart devices).

Internet Access for Smart Devices and Game Consoles

Connect Smart TVs, gaming consoles, and other smart devices to the HWS network.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA)

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) provides an additional layer of security when logging into HWS applications on a device for the first time. MFA verifies your identity by requiring additional credentials, like a PIN or answering a challenge question. Once the PIN is entered or the challenge questions are answered, MFA will remember your login on that device for 30 days. You will have to enter MFA credentials once every 30 days on a trusted device so that the security measure remains effective without too much inconvenience to you.

Remote Access to HWS Network

The HWS network can be accessed off-campus by the Virtual Private Network (VPN), allowing access to the HWS network drives.
