Ithaca College ITS is pleased to announce that the A&E Center is now ready to begin the testing phase for their new Wi-Fi environment. Between now and September 7th, we are continuously testing the performance of the network and are asking the community for feedback on any issues.

Once testing confirms successful network performance, the building will move from ‘testing’ to a ‘completed’ status. This expected completion will mark the entire completion of the 2014/2105 Wi-Fi Project at Ithaca College!  We are extremely pleased with the special considerations made for the A&E Center as a large public venue and excited to lay the foundation for robust Wi-Fi service in that building.
