The CWRU community relies on fast and reliable wireless network availability to get the most from their laptops, smartphones and tablets. To provide the robust mobile experience the community requires, ITS is in the midst of a $5 million improvement of the campus’ wireless infrastructure.

In 2010, ITS developed a multi-year, multi-phase plan to meet the growing demand for wireless connectivity on campus. After surveying the existing wireless signal strength, improvement began in the areas most in need of additional coverage. Progress continues today as ITS evaluates the wireless coverage needs of the campus and executes plans to meet them.

Use the maps or table below to see the wireless expansion status of the areas you use most. Details in the list will be updated regularly. Check back soon for progress updates.

New Signals

More wireless access points mean more devices can use the network at optimal connection speeds. We’re expanding wireless coverage within each campus building and among outdoor spaces by increasing access points by 100 to 200 percent in most locations. The map below shows the locations where new wireless access points are installed or marked for installation.
