SacLink Secure

SacLink Secure is the university's existing wireless network for faculty, staff, and students. It offers the highest bandwidth (or speed) and security for Windows or Apple computers, and most cell phones and mobile devices. To use this network, you must have an active SacLink account.


SacLink is the university's public wireless network for guest and visitors. Unlike SacLink Secure, SacLink requires you to enter your email address every four hours in order to stay connected. This network is intended for basic web browsing and does not permit access to secure Sacramento State services.


SacVPN is the university's virtual private network (VPN). Though not necessarily a wireless network, SacVPN allows individuals with specific use cases and need to connect to secure university services from off-campus as though they were on-campus. For more information, see Connecting to SacVPN.


SacEvent is the university's wireless network for campus events and special functions. This is a private network with access managed by event coordinators and university network services staff.
