WiFi Hot Spots

We understand some students may have limited broadband access. If you need to access Canvas or other class related materials from a broadband connection we have WiFi available from a designated area on each campus.

Wesson Campus- parking lot on the East side of the press box at H.L. Stone Football Stadium (in front of the tennis courts and baseball field). 

Simpson County Center- parking lot on the East side of the academic building in front of the modular units. The area in front of the white Adult Education modular unit provides the best access.

Natchez Campus- parking lot on the South side of the Howell Garner Building facing Alcorn's campus. We ask that you remain in your vehicles if you come to campus to use the WiFi and limit the times you come to campus from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
