The network was designed to be used exclusively for conducting college-related business and/or to support teaching and learning.
You can connect to this network from just about anywhere on the Arnold campus or these other AACC locations: Arundel Mills (AMIL); Glen Burnie Town Center (GBTC); Hotel, Culinary Arts and Tourism Institute (HCAT); and Sales and Service Training Center (SSTC).
To connect, simply select “AACC Wireless” from the list of available networks on your device.
To help maintain adequate resources on our wireless network, devices that are inactive for 180 minutes will be logged off. In this case your device will still be connected to the AACC Wireless network, but the web browser on your device will return you to the login page the next time you attempt to access a webpage.

The AACC Wireless network uses a technology called Captive Portal to direct web browsers to our Terms and Conditions page. Pressing the "I Accept" button at the bottom of this page completes the connection process and unlocks Internet access. Unfortunately, devices sometimes "ignore" the Captive Portal command and therefore never present Users with terms and conditions page. This issue can usually be resolved by following these steps:
If you are not currently connected, select the AACC Wireless network from the list of Available wireless networks Open a web browser on you device (Safari, Chrome, Firefox, Edge, etc.) type www.aacc.edu in the navigation bar of the browser and press enter. This should launch the Terms and Conditions page. Review the terms and conditions, then if you agree to comply press the "I Accept" button.
Apple Device Disconnects
There is a known issue with some Apple devices (iPhone, iPad) dropping off the network. The AACC Wireless network is configured to keep users logged in for up to three hours of inactivity but these devices often log out themselves out of the wireless network after only a few minutes of inactivity. This problem seems to occur mostly soon after Apple iOS updates have been applied. The logout issue can usually be fixed on devices by re-establishing your connection to the AACC Wireless by following these steps:
