Alumni Access 

A quick reminder about alumni technology access:

  • The Office of Alumni Relations will no longer issue network logins so alumni will not have access to desktop computers or printing in the library.
  • Alumni who bring their own device can request weekly Wi-Fi access by emailing, calling 773-325-8390 or stopping into the Alumni Center (1st Floor DePaul Center in the Loop).
  • IDs are not required for Wi-Fi access, but Alumni Relations strongly encourages them.
