Wireless Networks at SFA

SFA has two wireless access options (SSID's): SFA-WIRELESS and SFA-LAWN. Both connect to the same network and provide the same performance; however, SFA-LAWN is more secure. SFA-WIRELESS is still encrypted and secure, but provides a lower level of protection. SFA-WIRELESS can be accessed by devices that cannot be configured to connect to SFA-LAWN. Connecting to the wireless is a two-step process:

1. Connect to the access point.

a. SFA-WIRELESS does not require a username. The password is "golumberjacks" (all one word, no quotes) .

b. SFA-LAWN requires your mySFA username and password. Once connected to the access point, you must register with Bradford Campus Manager.

2. Register with Bradford Campus Manager by opening a web browser (Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, etc). You should be redirected to the Bradford Campus Manager. Follow the instructions to complete registration.

Guest Wireless Accounts

Guest wireless accounts are available for on campus visitors. The SFA sponsoring department or organization is responsible for the creation, distribution, and management of their guest wireless accounts (pre-sponsored and conference accounts).

If not pre-sponsored, once connected to the SFA-GUEST SSID, guests can request access for 24 hours by sending an email request through the system to an SFA Faculty or Staff member.

The website for the creation and management of guest wireless accounts can be accessed either in mySFA or directly at the SFA Guest Wireless Access located at:

We have created a user guide that demonstrates how to create a guest wireless account. If you need assistance with the system, please call the Help Desk at (936) 468-1212.
