Guest wireless internet (WiFi)

The NTCC guest wireless internet is available for all students and guests, and personal devices of employees. It should not be used for devices owned by NTCC.

Wireless internet coverage covers most of the interior of all NTCC campuses and sites, as well as limited areas in NTCC campus parking lots. Outdoor coverage generally covers the first couple rows of parking lots. We are in the process of expanding indoor coverage and tuning outdoor coverage.

Wireless settings

  • Wireless network name: NTCC Guest
  • Password: gogators (all lowercase, no spaces)

To offer the best experience, the guest wireless is delivered via 5Ghz wireless only. Most computers and mobile devices made in the last 10 years should be compatible, but compatibility with your device cannot be guaranteed. If your personal computer has issues connecting to the wireless, you can check a laptop out from Student Services.
