The Hamilton Network and Wireless Access

There are numerous central systems that are available to faculty, staff, and students. In the event that you need assistance from the Help Desk, please be as specific as possible when describing the problems you are experiencing.  We have secure wireless network access available in all campus buildings and most outdoor areas.

Hamilton's network is divided into two sections (domains):

  • Hamilton-D, used by employees (faculty & staff)
  • Hamilton-S, used by students

Accounts and Passwords

The Account information sheet you receive at the start of your employment contains the user id and password you will use to access Hamilton resources.

This sheet is mailed to new faculty at the physical address on file with the Dean's Office. It is given to staff upon their arrival, unless otherwise requested by the supervisor. If you did not receive your account details, please stop by the Help Desk (3rd floor of the Library) with your ID and you will be given another copy.  It is important that you do not share this password with anyone.

Email, Calendar, and Listserv

Hamilton's email system, HillConnect, is powered by Google Apps for Education. Our email addresses are in the form of first initial of the person's first name followed by the first seven characters of the person's last name, e.g. mscoones@hamilton.edu.  Due to duplicates, some email addresses may contain a person's middle initial.  You can verify an address using the on-line directory.

  • Please refer to the email policy for important information regarding the appropriate use of email at Hamilton.
  • For more information on using our email and calendar system, please see our HillConnect webpage.
