The WiFi infrastructure has been updated in spring of 2012 in order to accommodate the increasing number of wifi devices that students have. If you are having issues with poor Internet, contact OIT by emailing or by calling 258-HELP.

As a reminder, the new wifi infrastructure set up works best when there are no other devices interfering. No personal routers are allowed in Lawrence Apartments.
