3. Access SUMC Networks

All wireless devices MUST be registered to connect to Stanford and Hospitals networks.

Virtual Private Network

  • Stanford's VPN provides off-campus affiliated users with a Stanford IP address, once they enter their SUNet ID. This IP address allows them to use Stanford resources as though they were on campus
  • VPN does not replace proxy access to eJournals and other licensed resources.

Hospital Clinical Networks

The SHC and LPCH primary networks are highly secure; only hospital owned equipment can access them.

If you need access to hospital clinical applications from your own device, contact desktop support.

Both hospitals provide a wireless guest network for public access to web and email services.


Lane is accessible in EPIC at Stanford Hospital & Clinics, CERNER at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, and EHR at Stanford Vaden Health Center.

Library staff is not allowed to sponsor a guest access
