SafeConnect Registration and Installation for Macs

ResidentialWiFi

Students living in University Housing residence halls, which includes Village Apartments and University Courtyard Apartments, can access Internet via the Residential network (ResidentialWiFi) with a computer using the following instructions.

This must be done from within a housing unit listed above.

While connecting over the wireless or with a wired connection, open an Internet browser. The SafeConnect authentication page (shown below) should automatically be displayed, but if not, try browsing to safeconnect.uncp.edu.

Once you select Install it will prompt you for account credentials. It is not necessarily the credentials for your UNCP account. This is an account local to your computer. It may be the username and password you must use to log in when it first boots up, or when it comes back from a screen saver.
