  • CAPOUSD – District owned devices, BYOD devices, and true guest1 devices connect here. If prompted on a BYOD device, please use your CUSD username and password to connect. Visit to upgrade your web experience to staff web-browsing levels. For true guest access, see the instructions below.


Additional Wireless Information:



  • All devices will connect to this wireless network. This includes District owned devices, BYOD devices, and true guest1 devices.
    • District-owned devices will connect to this wireless network automatically and without any additional steps.
    • If this is the first time you are connecting to this network on a BYOD device, you will be asked to provide your username and password. This username and password will be the same as what you would use to login to your District machine.

What will happen if I leave my BYOD device on the CUSD wireless network?


When the CUSD and CUSDSTU wireless networks are removed, any devices still configured to connect to them will be unable to access the internet or network.


What are the benefits of clicking on override and logging in?


Internet access on the Capistrano Unified School District network is determined by who is logged in to the machine or device. Without knowing who is using a device, we provide the lowest tier (i.e. most restricted) internet experience. Once you let us know who you are, you will find an internet experience tailored for you.
