Connecting to Xavier Wireless Networks


This network is solely broadcast in residence halls wireless setup. Upon connecting, any webpage loaded will redirect to the XpressConnect website. This website will run a configuration utility that will automatically setup almost any device for wireless. After this setup process is completed, your computer will be connected to the 'xavierwireless' network.


This network is for visitors only.  It is broadcast in non-residential buildings.  This network does not have access to systems on Xavier's campus network.


This is the primary wireless network for employee and student devices. It uses 802.1x authentication (your Xavier username and password, as opposed to a traditional pre-shared key) to connect to the network. Xavier laptops (staff, loaners) are pre-configured for 'xavierwireless'.  Students and faculty/staff connecting personal devices should use the XpressConnect website to setup their systems for 'xavierwireless'


This network is for consumer devices that lack support for an 802.1x wireless network, such as gaming consoles, smart TVs, content players (Blu-Ray AppleTV, Firestick), etc. Some devices do not work well on Xmisc.  These devices need to be registered before they can connect to the wireless network. You will need to find and submit the device's MAC address using the Xmisc registration form.


  • Wireless printers are not supported. Most wireless printers broadcast an 'ad-hoc' network which creates interference and causes connectivity issues for others in the residence hall. If you bring a wireless printer, consult the documentation about how to turn off the wireless radio on the printer. Instead, connect these printers directly to your computer via a USB cable.
  • Wireless routers or extenders are prohibited for use in residence halls as well, due to the interference and connection problems they create.
