Wifi and Internet Access

Wireless Internet

EPSS-NET is the preferred wireless network for EPSS department members.  This network uses a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) for authentication, you can email helpdesk@epss.ucla.edu to obtain this passphrase.

For visiting scholars and researchers, We offer two other networks which are available throughout the Geology building and Slichter Hall. You can read more about Eduroam here.

“PhySciOpen” is an open (unauthenticated) network, which is available as a convenience for visitors and students, however, it should not be used for activities involving sensitive data. EPSS IT recommend you do not use this network for any critical activities, such as teaching, or conducting meetings.

If you are working in an area with consistently weak wireless reception, please email the helpdesk so we can evaluate and remedy the situation.

Hardwired internet

Most offices and labs in Geology and Slichter halls have cat5e ethernet jacks which will supply faster speeds than wireless. In most cases, the ports need to be activated on the EPSS network to function properly. If you would like to have network ports in your office or lab activated, please email helpdesk@epss.ucla.edu or stop by Geology 4687.
