Campus wireless network access 

The wireless network covers all campus buildings. Here's how to use it:

  • Your wireless adapter should detect the network "rlnpublic" - connect to it.
  • Open your web browser; you will be asked to read and accept the terms and conditions.
  • Once you accept the terms and conditions you will have access to the Internet using your browser.
  • Click here for the link to print from your wireless device.

If you are inactive on the wireless network for more than 25 minutes, your device will be disconnected from wireless access. 

General Access Computer Labs

UW-Richland has two general access computer labs and one iMac lab (available with faculty permission and supervision).

  • Classroom Building 211: This is a classroom lab and can be reserved by faculty for teaching purposes. It has 24 Dell OptiPlex workstations, a black and white printer, a color printer and a projector.
  • Miller Memorial Library Lab: This is the main general access lab that is open from 8:30 AM until 7:00 PM Monday through Thursday, 8:30 AM until 4:00 PM on Friday during the academic year. This lab has 36 Dell OptiPlex workstations (six of which are open for community use - inquiries about these computers can be made to the circulation desk staff), a black and white printer, a color printer and a scanner.
  • East Building iMac Lab: This lab is available with faculty permission and supervision. It contains 12 new (2010) 27 inch iMac computers loaded with Adobe Production Premium software. There are also 12 USB audio keyboards available to use for music composition. Two printers, a color and a black and white, are available along with a scanner that allows you to scan a document to your email.

The PCs in the general access computer labs run Microsoft Windows 7 Enterprise. Software installed on the computers includes Microsoft Office 2010, Visual Studio, Google SketchUp, Google Earth, and much more. The scanners that are located in the Miller Memorial Computer Lab and in the East Building iMac Lab are available to scan documents directly to email and are computer-independent (which means that they are not attached to a PC that might be tied up during busy times).
