Mobile Devices (Smartphones, Tablets)

College-Provided Devices

Barnard College is no longer purchasing cellphones or smartphones on behalf of members of the community.  Please contact Purchasing for further information on College policies.

Using Smartphones on Campus

Most smartphones (and similar devices, such as iPads) can connect to both the secure wireless network (Barnard Secure) and the guest wireless network (Barnard Guest).  Connecting to the secure network, which we recommend for all members of the Barnard community, will require you to accept a security certificate.

gBear works seamlessly with iOS and Android devices, though for full functionality BCIT suggests using the Google apps for mail and calendaring in preference to, e.g., Apple's native mail or calendar app.

If you need assistance configuring your mobile device, please contact the BCIT Service Desk.
