Lander University provides Wi-Fi Internet access in all academic buildings as well as most other facilities on campus.

To connect to Bearcat Wireless you must be a Lander Employee or Student with a valid Lander account. The Bearcat Guest Network allows connections to the Internet only and does not require a Lander account.


For Students, Faculty and Staff using personal laptops or wireless devices:

  1. Make sure wireless is switched on for your device.
  2. Navigate to the list of available networks and select Bearcat Wireless.
  3. When prompted, enter your Lander user name and password. (This is the same as your Lander email log in.)
  4. If prompted to accept a certificate, please click yes or accept.
  5. Once connected, you will need to install Cisco’s AnyConnect client and pass a device assessment. This process can be started by opening a web browser and visiting a non-Lander site (such as CNN or Google). You should be redirected to start downloading AnyConnect. Follow the installation instructions on the screen. Once the process has completed and assessment passed, you will have network access.
  6. If you have any trouble connecting to Bearcat Wireless or need assistance with your user name and password, please visit TRACS on the lower level of Jackson Library or call the ITS Help Desk at 864-388-8234.


**Students, Faculty and Staff should always connect to Bearcat Wireless to ensure access to campus resources. Lander owned laptops and other wireless devices are configured to connect to the Bearcat Wireless network automatically.

For Campus Guests Only: 

  1. Make sure wireless is switched on for your device.
  2. Navigate to the list of available networks and select Bearcat Guest.
  3. To read and accept the Bearcat Guest acceptable use policy, open a web browser and visit a non-Lander site (such as CNN or Google). Review the policy by scrolling to the end and clicking on the Accept button.
  4. Once the policy has been accepted, you will be allowed to access the Internet. Please remember that the Bearcat Guest network is not secured, like many other public wireless access points.  If you are transmitting sensitive data, please make sure the website you are using is secure.  Most banking and other financial institutions provide secure access and is usually indicated by an "https://" URL.
