Report A WiFi Problem

Spring 2014
Upcoming changes to the UHV's WiFi Networks

It is becoming more and more a necessity for students to be able to use their devices to access the curricula their professors and instructors are posting online. This has led to a major jump in wireless devices on the UHV WiFi network. This BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) trend at UHV prompted the need for UHV Technology Services to upgrade the WiFi infrastructure and change the process for providing WiFi services.

Welcome back!

The Wi-Fi hopes you had an enjoyable holiday break. We have made some changes while you were gone.

  1. JaguarWiFi has been expanded to the UHV\VC Library. We have some brand new “AC” Wi-Fi access points that should improve the internet quality in the library.
  2. We are now on Twitter. Please follow us @UHVWifi to get the latest news and/or get help with any network problems in your dorm room.
