After You Arrive: Technology Checklist for New Students

Connect to the wireless network

Wireless coverage is available in all dorms, public spaces, and classrooms. Hampguest is public; Wallace and Gromit require a Hampshire login. Students use Gromit, as Wallace is for faculty and staff only. In the dorms, the network name matches the housing area and requires a Hampshire login.

Log in to the Intranet

The Intranet contains information specific to the Hampshire community, including announcements, events, lost and found, student employment, etc.

Log in to TheHub

Complete the e-checkin process and check your class schedule, as well as approvals and holds. If a class doesn't appear under My Schedule on TheHub, you're not officially registered. Approvals and holds may block your ability to participate in the add/drop process or make purchases in the bookstore.

Check your Hampshire email

All students are provided an email account for official Hampshire correspondence. Check your email often using webmail or learn how to set up forwarding or another email client.

Learn more about labs and printing

Locate a computer to use and find out how and where to print, copy, or scan on campus.

Safeguard your computer

Keep your operating system, browsers, and software up to date; install virus protection and learn about prevention; choose a good password and keep it safe.

Protect your identity

Hampshire IT will never ask for your password. Do not send sensitive information via email even if the email requesting it appears official. Do not click on links in or reply to suspicious phishing emails.

Protect your OneCard

Your OneCard ID gets you access to your dorm, meals at the dining commons and The Bridge Cafe, library resources, and athletic facilities.

Log in to Moodle

Your professors may post class-related information or require assignment submissions in Moodle, the learning management system.

Connect with Hampshire IT on Facebook

We post announcements, tech tips, server maintenance times, and more on the IT blog and share with the community on Facebook.
