Outdoor Wireless Access Expanded

Technology Services recently completed an outdoor wireless project, creating 22 access points across campus (see list below). Faculty, staff, and students are now able to access outdoor wireless in a variety of locations and will greatly benefit from the options provided by this new service.

Whether checking email on a nice day or enjoying your online class outdoors, our hope is to enhance the experiences in teaching and learning for our students, faculty, and staff.
