Activate a Device to the BC Network

Every Wi-Fi device (smartphone, tablet, wireless gaming console, etc.) on the BC wireless network must be activated in order to access the Internet and email.

Most devices can be activated on the device itself by:

  1. Making sure the device is connected to the BC wireless network (BostonCollege), and you are not using the device's 3G to access the web. For most phones, you can find your Wi-Fi information under "Settings."
  2. Go to the activation site at: activate.bc.edu
  3. Follow the instructions on the activation site.

Need help? Call the Help Center at 617-552-HELP (4357) or bring your device to the Walk-In Help Desk.
