Wi-Fi Available Classrooms


You need Sophia ICT account to connect to the Internet.

*It takes two business days to issue Sophia ICT account. If you don’t have the account, please apply in advance.

Please take note the following points:

  1. ICT Office recommend that teachers use the wired LAN connection at the teacher’s desk instead of the Wi-Fi, as we cannot prioritize teacher Wi-Fi connections over student connection.
  2. Please do NOT use Wi-Fi to direct simultaneous viewing of videos, downloading of large software files, or uploading of assignment submissions. In such a case, ICT Office may disconnect the network in the classroom.
  3. ICT Office cannot support wi-fi use in class. Please let your students set up sophiawifi2019 and test connection in advance.

All attendants can connect to sophiawifi2019 at once in the rooms
