Plans to expand wireless computing announced
A number of improvements will soon be implemented to enhance wireless computer access across Alvernia’s campus, including extending access to outdoor spaces in heavily trafficked student areas. The enhancements are part of on-going initiatives to ensure computer technology in use across campus addresses the important needs of faculty, staff and students.
Plans to enhance wireless access on campus include:
Phase 1 — spring & summer 2011
Expanding wireless network access — at the Philadelphia campus, all main campus residence halls including Anthony Hall, Clare Hall, Francis Hall Residence, Judge Hall, Veronica Hall, and outdoor areas on the main campus. Wireless is currently available in Siena Hall, Assisi Hall, and the two Village Commons and limited wireless is available in all residence hall lobbies and study areas. Phase 2 — Summer 2012
Extending open/public wireless network access to some non-residence hall buildings, selected lobbies, conference rooms, public gathering areas and other buildings. Areas included in this phase are locations within Bernardine Hall Lecture Hall, BH 1102, BH 1103, BH 1104, BH 1105F; Francis Hall Conference Room, FH Main Stairwell, and FH fourth floor lobby. Open wireless is currently available throughout the library, student center, Physical Education Center, Center for Student Life, Upland Center, the Bernardine Hall lobby and the Schuylkill Campus lobby. Phase 3 — Summer 2013
Completing broader open/public wireless network access to outdoor areas where students are likely to gather, participate in events and study out-of-doors, including the University Commons, athletic track area, and other gathering spaces.
The program to expand wireless access is being managed by the University’s Information Technology Department
