Parkland Wi-Fi (Student Access) - Windows

Description of how students can access the Parkland Wi-Fi on campus.

The "Parkland" SSID is intended for use by Parkland students and guests.

  • Logins with ParklandOne credentials are retained for 2 weeks preventing the need to authenticate on a daily basis as long as the device is active on Parkland’s Wi-Fi network within the 2 week timeframe. The previous  timeout was 6 hours which required users to login each day.
  • Additional authorization methods have been added.  Guests may now login by using their Facebook or Google credentials.  They will need to connect to the "Parkland" SSID, and then select the appropriate authentication choice.  Timeout is set to 2 hours.  This will reduce the need to create guest accounts. For more information, please see Parkland Wi-Fi - Guest Access .

  • Users will be given limited access to Parkland network resources.
