Safe Connect is the layer of security the University uses to authorized users on the campus WiFi network. Safe Connect consists of two components, the Policy Key, and the SafeConnect Portal. All users need to install the Policy Key software and authenticate to the SafeConnect portal site.

Check out the video below to see how to install the policy key.

Once the Policy Key has been installed, it will prompt you a final time to enter your SCU Network Username and password. You Network Username is basically your SCU email address minus the "", e.g. , RBGinsburg is the SCU Network username.


If you cannot connect to the Internet while your attached to SCU-Student and have the SafeConnect policy key software installed, then make sure to have an antivirus software installed. A free version of SCU's antivirus software can be downloaded on SCU's software download page.

If you are still having issues, then call 408-554-5700 or stop by the IT Service center located in the main library and learning commons on campus.
