In October of 2018, the DePaul University Board of Trustees approved funding for a campus-wide WiFi upgrade project. The goal of the project, titled "Light Up DePaul", is to dramatically improve the WiFi experience in all campus locations.
Approximately 2000 WiFi access points will be installed and moved as a part of the improvements to coverage, client density and speed being made to the network. In addition to campus buildings, outdoor spaces such as the Quad and DPC Plaza will also be enhanced. The upgrades are scheduled to be completed by July of 2019.
Student, Faculty, and Staff feedback, technology surveys and technical data from Information Services contributed to the decision to pursue the upgrade. We would like to thank you for your participation in helping us improve this service.
