Direct connection to your house (via cable TV, DSL, fiber optic)
- A great way to check your home Internet connection is to run a speed test.
- Work with your service provider to see if you can improve connection to your home.
- If you continue to have Internet connection issues consider updating your router.
- You can use your cell phone to create a hotspot.
Consider community resources for drive-up WiFi or outdoor WiFi at parks that you feel are safe. See if your local library has free outdoor WiFi.
In addition, Ithaca College has a number of parking lots across campus where IC faculty can park and get a decent Ithaca College WiFi signal while sitting in a car.
IC faculty who are in the Ithaca area and have limited connectivity options off-campus may drive to campus to use one of these parking spots.*
We have updated the Ithaca College campus map to show these locations and listed them below.
- E Lot outside of Textor Hall — in the traffic circle and near Williams Hall
- F Lot outside of Smiddy and Center for Health Sciences — within the first few rows from the building
- G Lot outside of Hill Center
- L Lot in the spaces near Terrace 13
- O Lot outside the Roy H. Park School of Communications and Rothchild Place — within the first few rows from the buildings
- P Lot outside of the Peggy Ryan Williams Center
- U Lot outside of Phillips Hall and Campus Center — within the first few rows from the building
If you are unsure of what option is best for you, please reach out to the IT service desk — we may be able to help point you in a direction to pursue.
