What is high density wi-fi and what does it mean to me?

Over the past year, L&IT has begun preparing Bucknell’s wifi for the future by rolling out High Density Wifi. This refers to greatly increasing the number of Wireless Access Points in a building, particularly in high-traffic areas where there are regularly high numbers of people and devices. For example, this past summer, the number of access points in Dana Engineering was more than doubled. In short, this means faster and more consistent wireless speeds, better connectivity and coverage, and an overall better experience.

High density wifi is included in all new buildings, including Academic East and the Management and Art building currently under construction. It has also been installed in  most residence halls, Breakiron, Rooke Chemistry, Rooke Biology, O’Leary, and Olin. This project will continue for several more years as we work our way through the rest of campus.
