WiFi access

Now that wireless access to the University network is offered as a service by ICT Services, the Division's 'experimental' services should be made consistent with the University's adopted policies.

There have been requests from Building 1, 5 and 20 for extended wireless (or WiFi) access to the University computer network. The current hotspots in the Division are experimental and do not use the University-sanctioned system for providing students and staff with access to the University network (this requires configuration of ICT Services network switches that the TSU does not have access to). As a network service, WiFi should be the responsibility of ICT Services. Requests for extension of the current provision of services, or the conversion of the Division’s current experimental services to operate under the University sanctioned system should be directed to ICT Services.
