Wow, you guys. Remember when University Information Services promised to have wireless Internet access in every residence hall by year’s end?
Looks like they weren’t lying.
According to UIS Associate Director Donna DeLay, Copley Hall will have wireless access come Mar. 11.
“University Information Services will be upgrading the data network and activating wireless internet services in Copley Hall on Friday, March 11th between 6 a.m. and 5 p.m.,” she wrote in an email to Copley residents. “Once the installation is complete, the wireless internet service will be available for your use.”
While Vox doesn’t have any updates about any other dorms—notably, Alumni Square, Darnall Hall, Harbin Hall, Henle Village, LXR, Nevils, Village A, and Village C—we’re waiting to hear from UIS about wireless infrastructure status across campus.
Get excited, everybody. Campus tours don’t have to lie anymore!
After the jump, we’ve republished DeLay’s email.
Wireless Is Coming to Copley March 11th
University Information Services will be upgrading the data network and activating wireless internet services in Copley Hall on Friday, March 11th between 6am and 5pm. During this time, internet services in the building will experience intermittent outages affecting all internet and network access to include the computer labs and network printing.
Contractors will continue to work throughout the building over the next two weeks. Once the installation is complete, the wireless internet service will be available for your use. UIS associates will be onsite in the lobby March 11th to assist you or by calling the student Help Desk on 202-687-4577. Instructions for the wireless network can be found on http://uis.georgetown.edu/connecting/airhoyawireless/.
We appreciate your cooperation as we implement wireless services in the residence halls.
