Network & Wireless

The Caltech Network infrastructure provides eligible users with access to Wired and Wireless networks, and Remote Access (VPN).

Wired network (CITnet) access is available in all campus buildings. Most wall plates labeled with an "A" jack are activated for wired access.

Caltech is also currently in the process of a complete wireless network refresh. While we work to complete the upgrades, building by building, there will be two wireless networks operating in tandem. Caltech Beavernet will be retired from each building as we roll out Caltech Secure.

Select the wireless network you want to join for more information and configuration instructions:


For assistance on connecting to the Caltech network from off campus, please refer to our Remote Access information page.

In an effort to provide a secure and reliable networking environment, we reserve the right to monitor network activity to aid in the solving of problems encountered with or on the CITnet.
