AACC Wireless zone
A­nne Arundel Community College has established a wireless network for students, faculty, staff and guests called AACC Wireless.

The network was designed to be used exclusively for conducting college-related business and/or to support teaching and learning. 

You can connect to this network from just about anywhere on the Arnold campus or any of these other AACC locations: Arundel Mills (AMIL); Center for Cyber and Professional Training (CCPT); Glen Burnie Town Center (GBTC); Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism Institute (HCAT); and, Sales and Service Training Center (SSTC).  


How to Connect

To connect, simply select “AACC Wireless” from the list of available networks on your device. 

Once your device is connected to the network, you should be prompted to review and accept the terms of use.


Using the Wireless Network

After reading and accepting the terms of use, you will be able to access the Internet and have access to many AACC technology resources. We will not collect personal information about you while you use the wireless network. All customers are responsible for using the network in an ethical and lawful manner, and are subject to the rules and restrictions laid out in the Acceptable Use of IT Resources policy. 

To help maintain adequate resources on our wireless network, devices that are inactive for 180 minutes will be logged off.  In this case your device will still be connected to the AACC Wireless network, but the web browser on your device will return you to the login page the next time you attempt to access a web page.­ 


Known Issues

There is a known issue with Apple devices (iPhone, iPad) running certain versions of iOS 8. The AACC Wireless network is configured to keep users logged in for up to 3 hours of inactivity but these devices often log out themselves out of the wireless network after only a few minutes of inactivity. This problem seems to be largely resolved in iOS version 9. AACC recommends updating to the latest iOS version supported by your device.  However, the logout issue can usually be fixed on devices with iOS 8 by re-establishing your connection to the AACC Wireless by following these steps:

  1. Within range of the AACC Wireless network, open up the Settings app and tap on the ‘Wi-Fi’ tab.
  2. You’ll now be presented with a list of Wi-Fi networks in your vicinity. You’re probably already connected to AACC Wireless, so it shouldn’t be too hard to find. Once you’ve got it, tap the blue arrow alongside its name.
  3. Now tap the ‘Forget this Network’ button.
  4. Your device will now forget the credentials for the AACC Wireless network, and will no longer connect automatically when your device discovers it.
  5. To reconnect to the network, simply tap AACC Wireless, within the Wi-Fi menu. You will be prompted to accept the terms of use.
