Campus Wireless Upgrade


Information Technologies is currently upgrading wireless infrastructure in academic and student services buildings.  We anticipate completing the first phase of the project by the end of April 2012.  By deploying the most current wireless technology, this project will address demands of the growing wireless user base while increasing coverage and performance in many locations. The project supports objectives in the UMW Strategic Plan and in the IT Strategic Plan.

Wireless access points will be upgraded one-by-one in buildings to minimize service disruptions.  Users might see a brief outage (approximately four minutes) of wireless during an upgrade.  No wireless upgrades will occur during reading days or during final exams.  Once a schedule is finalized it will be posted on this page and will be updated as any adjustments are made.
