Jayhawk Wi-Fi Going on Vacation in Outdoor Areas, July 17-Aug. 30
It’s hot outside, and fewer people are braving the outdoors to work or study. So now is an optimal time for outdoor Jayhawk Wi-Fi to take a vacation as we upgrade our campus wireless network.
The Jayhawk Wi-Fi network will be turned off in outdoor areas beginning July 17. But don’t worry, you’ll still be able to access Wi-Fi outside on campus by using the KUGuest Wi-Fi network. We expect work to be complete by Aug. 30, and will notify campus when the enhanced Jayhawk network is once again available in outdoor campus areas. The fast and secure Jayhawk Wi-Fi network will remain available in campus buildings.
The work is part of KU’s Wireless First initiative, a project to enhance and expand wireless service on the Lawrence campus. In addition to increased coverage and capacity, Wireless First will strengthen the network security and provide options for future enhanced features, such as app guided wayfinding, location-based services, and opt-in push notifications.
We appreciate your patience as we enhance Jayhawk Wi-Fi to improve the customer experience for KU faculty, staff, students and visitors on campus.
