Kids Connect

Fairmont State University is a member of West Virginia Kids Connect, a wifi access initiative designed to help students stay connected during the global COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. If your student needs to connect to the internet for online learning, we have a special hotspot set up on the Fairmont State campus, which can be accessed in the parking lot along Squibb Wilson Boulevard beside the Frank & Jane Gabor Folklife Center (see the circled area, lot 4, on the map below).
