Information Technology’s Networking team, in close collaboration with Residence Life, has begun a project to improve the wireless network performance in our residence halls following a student satisfaction survey conducted this past December. All residence halls were tested for wifi signal strength and coverage, and plans were developed to install additional wireless access points in hallways, common areas, and in some cases directly in student rooms.
Installation of this additional equipment began in mid-January and to date has been completed in Blanton Hall, Hawk Crossings, and The Village. Work is in process in the remaining residence buildings and will finish by early April.
Students should see a noticeable improvement in wireless signal coverage and performance as a result of these efforts. Follow up surveys will be sent to gather feedback from residents.
