The Information Technology Infrastructure and Operations teams wanted to let the community know that we have reached another milestone of the project: The wireless infrastructure at the Graduate School of Education and Counseling has been replaced and it is fully operational. 

A quick summary of the current status:

  • GSEC WiFi replacement complete.
  • Law campus WiFi replacement is expected to be completed by January 7, 2022.
  • CAS / Fir Acres campus WiFi replacement will continue through the Spring term while being mindful of disruptions to academics.
  • The outgoing WiFi infrastructure, LC Wireless and LC Secure, has been turned off in the residence halls and GSEC with the following exemptions:
    • Maggie’s Café
    • Administrative offices in Odell Hall
    • Administrative offices in East Hall

If you are in the area of the Residence Halls or GSEC, check out our guide for getting connected to the PioNet, PioNet-Resident, and PioNet-Guest networks.
