  • Use of the RVC Wi-Fi networks, except RVC-GUEST, require authentication via an employee or student account for greater access to services and higher internet speeds.
  • Employees and Students use their network accounts for access.
  • Employees may request an account for a long-term Guest by using the Quarry/Info. Technology/IT HelpDesk/Guest Network Account Request. 

The RVC Wireless Networks (SSIDs)


Guests at RVC may use their personal device to connect to the Internet for short-term access. After initial connection, a web browser must be opened to view the acceptable use policy and click the Accept button. This is not an automatic connection; when you change locations, you may need to reconnect and open your web browser again. This network is not secure, has limited-bandwidth and may slow down at times, depending on how many people are using it. The RVC-Guest portal looks like the graphic below.

Employees, students, or education-related guests using their personal devices and network accounts (e#, s#, or g#) have access to the Internet only.

RVC-owned laptops have access to network files, network printing, and other RVC network resources.  Employees needing assistance getting their RVC-owned laptop configured to access the RVC network may submit an eTicket. Once set up, you will not be required to manually supply login credentials when you connect.


Employees with a personal Apple iOS device can use their network account (e#) to ‘mirror' device output to the instructor workstation and onto the projector, using RVC's wi-fi.  Instructor stations throughout the college have the required software installed.  Employees will not have access to local RVC file and print services when using this network.
