Wifi Upgrade Coming to the Residence Halls

A blog post from IT -

IT to deploy nearly 700 wireless access points in residence halls

In response to residence hall student concerns and the growing need for wireless coverage, over the summer IT hired a consulting firm to survey all the Michigan Tech campus for wireless coverage.  The result is an ambitious project to install nearly 700 new access points in Wadsworth Hall, McNair Hall, Douglass Houghton Hall, and Hillside Place. The project kicked off on August 4, 2014 with contractors installing raceway and patch cables in nearly every other room in the halls. This project is ongoing and expected to be completed in early fall semester.
