Finding a comfortable place to
browse Facebook in a dorm room
can be tough. Without wireless
Internet available in most resi-
dence halls, using the Internet
means struggling to stay plugged
This isn't a concern in the
recently renovated Mosher-Jordan
Residence Hall, which is complete-
ly wireless. And once Stockwell
Hall and North Quad open they
will also be equipped with wire-
less - but what about the rest of
Peter Logan, University Housing
spokesman, said one of the major
challenges for installing wireless
in dorms is funding.
Logan said that University
Housing is a self-sustaining unit
with basic revenue that comes from
student room and board rates. As a
result, Housing has to prioritize
plumbing and electrical improve-
ments and heating and roofing
repairs over installing wireless.
"University Housing recog-
nizes wireless is important but it's
expensive," Logan said.
He added that it can cost sev-
eral thousands of dollars to install
wireless access points throughout
an entire residence hall, especially
in dorms like West Quad and East
Quad with complicated hallways.
"The larger and more complex
the building, the more it costs to
run wiring for the wireless access
points," Logan said. "In some halls,
existing conduit may work, in oth-
ers there have to be new wiring
But the renovations of Mosher-
Jordan and Stockwell required
entire sections of walls to be taken
down, making it easy to installwire-
less as part of the reconstruction.
Though it's expensive, Logan
said Housing officials are looking
to add wireless to certain locations
in the residence halls. To help pri-
oritize prime wireless spots, Hous-
ing is working with an advisory
group within the Residence Halls
Association. This advisory group
suggested that Housing officials
should focus first on installing
wireless on North Campus.'
As of right now, one wing of Burs-
ley Hall is equipped with wireless,
and by the end of the academic year,
a second wing will be equipped,
which will constitute half of the resi-
Housingofficials and RHA are
also workingon installing wireless
in chief study areas in the dorms.
