To prepare your laptop for Penn Law, you will need to configure AirPennNet on your laptop. Currently, only laptops, iOS, and Android devices support AirPennNet’s security protocols.

Note: AirPennNet requires a PennKey to connect. If you have not setup your PennKey or cannot remember your password, please contact itshelp@law.upenn.edu.
