CWI Introduces New Campus Wi-Fi Network

Published: December 17, 2020

Beginning Dec. 28, during Winter Break, College of Western Idaho’s (CWI) Information Technology (IT) team will change the Wi-Fi network connections of CWI-STUDENT and CWI-GUEST, combining them to CWI-PUBLIC.

People visiting campus who historically would have logged into CWI-STUDENT or CWI-GUEST will no longer see these options. Those on campus wanting to sign-in will now see the option to connect to CWI-PUBLIC.

Students and Guests

  • Select CWI-PUBLIC from the network list.
  • Enter your username and password and agree to the Terms of Use on the login page.
  • Guest who do not currently have a username and password can select a link on the Wi-Fi logon page to create an account.


  • Continue to use the CWI-WIFI network.

Please contact the Help Desk with any questions at 208.562.3444.
