Guest wireless access Guest wireless access (ESF-Guest) is available everywhere on main campus. For remote campuses, there is a guest account available for the Evergreen network. The ESF Guest wireless is limited in scope to the greater Internet, but ESF and select SUNY systems are not available through this connection. For access to these resources, please use the Evergreen network with your campus credentials, if possible.

Connection Requirements

Please pay close attention to the connection requirements below and the list of wireless availability above. Many of the issues reported are due to devices that do not meet the requirements and also from people trying to connect or maintain a connection from a location that does not have supported wireless. 

  • A laptop, or other device, with wireless capability

  • Windows 10 or higher, Macintosh OS 10.15 or higher, any newer smartphone or similar device

  • A valid ESFiD

NOTE: On occasion, it may be necessary to acknowledge an acceptable use statement or other brief notification prior to gaining network access.

NOTE: Because security certificates update periodically, it may be necessary to 'Forget' your Evergreen connection and re-add the network to your device for successful connection.

NOTE: A reminder that SUNY ESF will block network access to any device running bit torrent or any other file sharing software!
