Authenticate your computer and devices now!


On campus? Authenticate your devices to maintain access to W&M network services.

Full Description

Network authentication is conducted annually at W&M.  This process allows us to account for the computers and devices wanting to use the W&M network and provide network access to them. 

The date for network authentication is Wednesday, August 1, 2018.  To access network resources you must authenticate the first time you are on campus after that date.

On campus now?

If you are currently on the W&M campus you can authenticate now by following these steps:

  1. Open a web browser (e.g., Internet Explorer, Chrome) and visit http://connect.wm.edu
  2. Select your role and enter your WMuserid and password on the CAS authentication page.
Not on campus?

Don't worry! You still have access to all W&M resources, but you must authenticate when you return to the W&M campus.
