Project Description

Work on the Infrastructure Revitalization has already begun and includes an evaluation of and improvement of WiFi coverage in the student residence halls and replacement of the aging campus telephone system.

Milestone

A great deal of planning and preparation has been done on the improvement of WiFi coverage in the student residence halls. This process has included collecting data from student reports of WiFi issues, extensive WiFi signal testing, and bringing in outside consultants to review and refine placement of new WiFi Access Points (APs). The first residence halls that will see these improvements are Tolley and Brown.

On TuesdayWednesday and Thursday of this week, technicians will be installing additional APs throughout Tolley and Brown, focusing on dorm rooms to ensure good WiFi coverage for everyone. This is being done in coordination with Residence Life so that students will have advanced notice of when installers will need access to each room.

Coming Soon

This work is the foundation for further WiFi improvements in other residence halls on campus. University Technology will use student feedback and results from further signal strength testing as we plan and design the next installations.
