ITS is in the process of replacing the UI Wireless network equipment across campus. We have scheduled this work at Seamans Center for a two-week time frame beginning July 14, 2014.
Our technicians will be in your building replacing existing wireless access points and adding new ones where needed. We hope to do this with as little disruption to your daily routine as possible. As we replace access points in a particular area of your building, the wireless service in that area will be interrupted briefly.
