Campus buildings undergoing Wi-Fi assessment

In the coming weeks, 47 buildings across campus will receive an assessment of their current Wi-Fi environment.

This assessment is critical for future network planning and will ensure additional growth and enhancements can be implemented for vital technology and infrastructure systems.

In 2016, the McMaster IT Services Review identified campus Wi -Fi services as a pressing concern.  In an effort to significantly improve the Wi-Fi Service, McMaster University will undergo an assessment of the existing Wi-Fi technology in buildings located on main campus and satellite campuses.

All of the project activity will take place through the months of August and September during normal business hours, Monday to Friday and will have minimal impact on the McMaster community.  A detailed schedule of the Wi-Fi assessments in each building will be available in the coming days, and specific dates will be communicated to known groups, departments and faculties located in the impacted buildings.

If you are aware of a weekday event planned in one of the buildings listed below, please contact Stephen Cornfield to ensure the work will not cause any disruptions.
