Wireless - Outdoor Wireless Coverage

Tags Wireless

Issue/Question

  • Are there any outdoor areas with intentional wifi coverage?
  • Are there any parking lots with intentional wifi coverage?

Environment

  • Oregon State University
  • Wireless Network

Explanation

Most of OSU's wireless network is intended to provide coverage in indoor spaces. Wireless may bleed over into outdoor areas but coverage is not particularly good in those cases.

However, a few outdoor areas have intentional wifi coverage; they are listed below.

Resolution

Outdoor spaces with intentional wifi coverage:

  • Valley Library quad - the South half of the quad is covered by access points mounted on Valley Library.
  • Parking structure at 26th and Washington Way - most areas in the parking structure are covered but there are a few dead spots.
  • Parking lot North of McNary hall, near the East end of the building.
  • Cascade Hall parking lot - most spots are reserved for Public Safety but a few non-reserved parking spots have wifi coverage as well.

For assistance, contact the Service Desk.
