The MGH Institute of Health Professions provides two wireless networks: PHSWIFI3 and PHSPIAGUEST. Students are encouraged to access the secure PHSWIFI3 but guests may log into the non-secure PHSPIAGUEST network while on campus.

There are several printers/scanners located throughout the campus offering printing services to students, faculty, and staff via the Pharos printing system. An MGB network/IHP email account is required to use this system and is created for every matriculating student and employee. As a student or employee of the Institute your MGB network logon gives you access to the secure network wireless network (PHSWIFI3) as well as MBG-built laptops and desktops across the MGB system.
