Bristol Community College offering free Wi-Fi to all in select parking lots



Bristol Community College is assisting its students and community during the current pandemic in an unexpected way – by providing free Wi-Fi hotspots in parking lots on the Bristol Fall River Campus, 777 Elsbree Street.

According to a spokesperson for the college, the college’s free wireless Internet service can be accessed by anyone, every day, during the hours of 7 a.m. – 10 p.m., to assist with remote learning or personal responsibilities requiring Internet access. Students, faculty and staff can simply log in with their network credentials, while anyone not attending Bristol, can choose “Guest” on the Wi-Fi network’s captive portal page to access the free service.

While inside of a vehicle, students and community members can quickly and easily access high-quality Wi-Fi in parking lots 6, 7 and 8, under the shelter of the solar canopies at Bristol Community College’s Fall River Campus. Signs are currently posted at the Fall River location leading to the free Wi-Fi hotpot areas.

According to U.S. Census Bureau information (2014-2018), 15.3% of Massachusetts households did not have a broadband Internet subscription, equating to thousands of Massachusetts residents without internet access.
