TC Wi-Fi network

Teachers College provides open Wi-Fi for all faculty, students, staff and visitors to our institution. The Wi-Fi is available across the entire campus (excluding campus housing).  We have designed the campus to have access to comprehensive Wi-Fi in all buildings throughout the classrooms, administrative and faculty offices, and hallways. 

To connect to the campus Wi-Fi network, please open your Wi-Fi settings on your mobile device and choose "TC" SSID to connect.  At this time, you are not required to provide any credentials to access the Wi-Fi network. 

As when connecting to any Wi-Fi environment, please use good computing practices: 

  • Ensure that your mobile device has the latest software updates
  • Install a current anti-virus solution and keep updates current.
  • Never perform financial transactions on unsecured Wi-Fi environments (e.g., cafes, subways)
  • Do not email sensitive data while on public Wi-Fi networks
  • Verify any website transaction starts with “HTTPS” to ensure a secure encrypted web connection.

If you encounter any issues with connecting to the Teachers College Wi-Fi network, please contact the Service Desk for assistance.  You can reach the Service Desk at 212-678-3300 or at
