The office of Communication Technologies maintains a robust wireless data network throughout main campus, Centennial campus and the College of Veterinary Medicine. This network provides access to campus computing services and the Internet for all students, faculty and staff by using the Unity ID and password credentials.

The current technology is based on 802.11 a/b/g/n protocols (802.11b data rates below 11Mbs have been turned off.). Complete design and implementation for 802.11n continues as we work to enhance the general coverage as well as classroom coverage in campus buildings.
