Tiger Tracks: Internet Access & Printing

A collaboration between GC Academic Success & the Ensor LRC.

Personal Computers & Internet Access

WiFi Access

You can access the GCWiFi wireless network in all residence halls and major buildings on campus.

  • This is the preferred (secured) network for student usage. You must login using your GC username and password.
  • TigerGuest is not secured and is intended for campus visitors. The TigerGuest network has limited availability and can be found in buildings such as the student center, Gidding’s Hall, and the LRC. 
Network Access via Ethernet Cable (Residence Halls)

In residence hall rooms, there is an Ethernet jack per person for your computer or other device.

  • A student supplied CAT5 Ethernet cable is required.
  • You may connect a device that uses an Ethernet connection such as DVD/Blu-Ray players, gaming consoles, TIVO, etc.

To set-up your device:

  1. Connect your device’s Ethernet cable to the TAN Ethernet jack located on the wall in your room. DO NOT plug into the black telephone jack.
  2. Turn on your device. As long as your system is setup to automatically obtain network information such as an IP address it will automatically connect to the internet.
