Wireless Internet

Cadets, Staff & Faculty

All USMA-issued laptops should automatically connect to the "West Point Wireless" network. The West Point Wireless network (DREN) is a CAC-authenticated network. This network is available throughout the entire library.

If you cannot connect to the wireless:

  • Check to make sure that your wireless is turned on.
  • Try restarting your computer, especially if it does not find the West Point Wireless network, since it may "remember" the hard-wired connection it most recently used.
  • If you still cannot connect to the wireless, please contact Goldcoats or your DCO.


If you are using an iPad to access a wireless network, you must have installed and activated the Airwatch App in order to connect to the West Point Mobile wireless network. If your iPad cannot find that network, please contact Goldcoats or IETD for assistance.

West Point Community, Alumni, and Visitors

A very limited wireless network (USMALIB) is available in certain areas of the library for the West Point community, alumni, and visitors. To access this wireless network on your personal device, see the staff members at the Front Desk or Help Desk.

Please note: Cadets are not authorized to use the USMALIB network for any device.
