Information Services > Services > Wireless > Light Up DePaul - Project Description
In October of 2018 the DePaul University Board of Trustees approved a funding proposal to upgrade the WiFi network. The project, titled “Light Up DePaul”, will improve the WiFi network experience in all buildings on both campuses by: increasing speeds, improving reliability and security, enhancing manageability for emerging technology needs and challenges, and adding capacity for future growth. Student feedback, gathered from the annual technology survey administered by Information Services over the past few years, helped to reinforce the need for this project.
Faculty, Staff, and Students may see electrical contractors throughout DePaul buildings spaces at various times working to install additional cabling required for the new WiFi access points. Information Services is working with Facilities Operations to minimize any impacts to university business during the project.You can view the progress of the project here.
