UNF-Wireless Network

Information Technology Services will begin installing a new wireless network this week. The new network, UNF-Wireless, is a multi-year project that will ultimately triple the number of access points on campus, enable a faster connection and provide a better experience. Phase 1 begins with Skinner-Jones Hall, Building 4, which will be converted to the new network the morning of Thursday, June 14. Housing areas occupied for Summer B will be converted next; these students will be able to enjoy the new network upon move-in. Phase 1 will continue throughout the summer, with the aim to complete all remaining residence halls, John A. Delaney Student Union and the Coggin College of Business before the fall term begins. View the planned conversion schedule and learn more about connecting to the University's wireless networks.
