Campus Technology Information

Campus Computers

  • To log on to a campus computer (IVCC network):
       Username:  K-number
       Initial Password:  Eaglesxxxxxxx! (Xs represent your 7-digit student ID number)
       New Password:  14 characters or more in length, containing at least 3 of 4 items (uppercase, lowercase, number, special character); do not use your first/last name nor the word 'password.'
  • For a campus computer (IVCC network) password reset, contact the Student Help Desk. You will need your name, K-number, and 7-digit student ID number.
  • Computer passwords need to be reset every 90 days. This also pertains to your Wi-Fi login--the password needs to be reset on a campus computer for your Wi-Fi login to continue.

Wireless Access

Wi-Fi is available at IVCC's Main Campus in Oglesby and at the Ottawa Center in Ottawa.

After successfully logging onto an IVCC campus computer and setting up a new password (see above on how to log in), follow the steps below for Wi-Fi access.

  1. Select IVCCguest for Wi-Fi network
  2. Open browser--your webpage should load to the IVCC Guest Portal authentication webpage. If the browser does not automatically open to this webpage, then redirect the browser by navigating to (this should redirect you to the IVCC Guest Portal).
  3. Use your campus computer login (network login).

Your computer password expires in 90 days. If you cannot log on to the Wi-Fi, then log in to a campus computer to see if your password needs updating.

We recommend personal earbuds/headsets to be used with audio, but the Academic Support Center has a limited supply of earbuds/headsets.
