The New School offers wireless Internet access campus-wide on a secure network: "newschoolnet".

Wireless is available to degree and credit-seeking students, faculty, staff, and alumni, too. Login is required campus-wide, so others are not able to use the service. This makes your laptop safer from viruses, spyware and other threats and makes more bandwidth available to you. Login with your NetID username and password.

For your protection and network security, anti-virus software and current virus definitions are required for a Windows PC to login to "newschoolnet". The New School has made it easy for you to comply.

  • The Safe•Connect Policy Key must be installed on both Windows and Macintosh computers in order to connect to the New School's wirless network. We use Safe•Connect to ensure wireless network security by requiring user authentication, up to date virus protection, and to protect secure areas of The New School network. The Safe•Connect Policy Key does not collect any personal user information nor does it examine a user's files.

  • The New School offers Symantec Anti-Virus Corporate Edition free to credit-seeking students, faculty and staff! This software entitles you to free updates for as long as you are enrolled at or affiliated with The New School. To get the software, login to MyNewSchool and look in the Academic Technology channel under the "Student", "Faculty" or "Employee" tab. In addition to Symantec, all leading software meets the requirement. This includes Norton, McAfee, TrendMicro, AVG, etc. Guest lecturers may simply download the free version of AVG software, which is compliant, at free.grisoft.com.
