The RRC Library can help with technical hurdles

August 23, 2019

At the Library we are familiar with the technical hurdles that may face students. In this article, we will list some of the more common technical questions we get, and outline how you can overcome technical problems and succeed in your studies.

Connecting to Wireless

Staff and students should connect through the Wireless Network named RRCWireless. Do not connect to RRCGUEST.

The Red River College Library continues to receive inquiries about the wireless network. However,  at the Library we are wireless users, just like you! At RRC, the Information Technology Solutions department manages the wireless networks.

There is an online technical guide if you are having difficulty connecting your device to wireless:

There are four important lessons to remember when connecting to RRCWireless:

  1. Always use RRCWireless. Don’t use RRCGuest.
  2. Login with the same username and password you use in HUB.
  3. If you are a returning student, and you had to reset your password over the summer, use “forget this network” and setup a fresh connection to RRCWireless.
  4.  If your device was set with an old password, this will cause the college’s wireless system to lock out your device. Unfortunately, when you attempt to reconnect with your username and a correct password you may still be locked out! Just forget the network, wait 30 minutes, and attempt to connect again

Student Email

To connect your student email to your mobile device, follow the instructions posted on this page:
