What's going on with hillspot?

Stonehill has great wifi in all of our buildings and outdoors in front of MacPhaidin Library.  But, our wireless is quite different from what most of us use at home.  Hillspot provides secure connections that ensure identity protection and encryption of all data on our network and beyond.

At times, you may experience difficulty connecting to hillspot.  This can be caused by a variety of issues including:

  • a personal printer nearby has wifi turned on;
  • hillspot is at the bottom of a long list of networks on your Mac;
  • several people nearby are all streaming video; or
  • your device is misconfigured.

Please review the tips and recommendations on our Troubleshooting Wireless Connectivity page to get and stay connected!

If you ever need assistance with wireless, please visit the IT Service Desk in Duffy 025 during our business hours with your device.  Our very capable student assistants and staff are always ready to help.  You can also call us at 508-565-4357 (HELP) or email service-desk@stonehill.edu.
