We recommend that all Reed students, faculty, and staff use Reed1x as their WiFi access point. This is an encrypted network with greater security and more access for administrative users.

  1. Upon selecting Reed1x from the list of WiFi networks, you will be prompted to enter your Kerberos username and password. Press the Join button in the top right corner afterwards to continue.

You can use our other SSID, ReedXenia, as an alternative if Reed1x gives you issues or if you are a visitor or conference attendee.
