PORN PROBLEMS

Connecting the residence halls

While the majority of academic
buildings on campus have at least
some wireless access, plans to pro-
vide wireless in the dorms are still
in the preliminary phases, leaving
some students to question what's
taking so long.
The only dorm to have wireless
access throughout the entire building
to date is Mary Markley. Some dorms
also have pilot programs that provide
some wireless coverage.
Beth Loesch, director of Infor-
mation Technology for University
Housing, said that the reason wire-
less access in the dorms lags behind
classroom buildings is because the
classroom buildings have space in
the ceilings and walls to lay cables
for the technology. The walls of the
residence halls are thicker, so to
install wireless inthe existing dorms
the University has to install exposed
tubing to run the necessary cables,
Loesch said.

It would cost between $600 and
$800,000 to outfit each dorm, Loesch
said. Much of the work to outfit the
dorms also has to be completed on
an accelerated schedule during the
Spring and Summer terms so that
students aren't disrupted, she said.
Loesch said another reason for the
delay is that the wireless networks in
the dorms need to have a higher level
of security than the average wireless
network.
Upgrading the dorms with wire-
less access is a priority listed in
University President Mary Sue Cole-
man's Residential Life and Learn-
ing Initiative launched in the fall of
2004, but Loesch said other more
essential upgrades such as plumb-
ing have affected the amount of
resources the University can devote
to improving wireless coverage.
Under the Initiative, a wireless
pilot program was launched in Burs-
ley Hall this semester. Complete

wireless coverage in the dorm is
expected by next fall.
Once Bursley's pilot program is
finished, Loesch said the University
will have a better idea of how longto
it will take to outfit all of the dormi-
tories.
The University is also adding
wireless Internet capability in the
dorms that are scheduled for renova-
tion or construction.
Wireless Internet access is being
incorporated into North Quad's
construction, which is scheduled
to open in the fall of 2009. Wire-
less will also be a feature of Mosher
Jordan and Stockwell Halls when
the dorms reopen after undergoing
renovations.
While students wait for wireless
coverage to be expanded, the Univer-
sity is working with the Residence
Hall Association to determine prior-
ity locations for pilot networks.
