Wireless Effort Nears Completion

The Wireless Upgrade and Expansion Project is nearing its completion after nearly three years of work. Over 242 buildings are being upgraded, and of those, 235 are complete. Work is ongoing at the Police Training Institute, the Airport Rescue and Firefighting Buildings, the Astronomy Building, Turner Student Services Building, office space in the Illini Union Bookstore, Krannert Center for the Performing Arts, and the Snow Removal Equipment Building. All buildings have anticipated completion dates in May 2017.

Over 31 buildings have had 100,000+ square feet of wireless coverage added since the beginning of the project. The most significant upgrade to date is the Roger Adams Laboratory, which had 141 new Wireless Access Points installed adding an estimated 296,800 sq. ft. of wireless coverage.
