The Network Administration Group at Information Technology Services is responsible
for maintaining the high-speed data network that spans the Binghamton University campuses.
Access to Binghamton University resources and the internet are provided, and all interior
building spaces are covered with a secure wireless (Wi-Fi) signal that can be utilized
by any faculty, staff or student with a valid account.

Who is currently using the Binghamton University Wi-Fi network?
In response to a request from the student body, over the last several years Binghamton
University Information Technology Services has endeavored to expand the purposeful
coverage of outdoor areas with Wi-Fi. Areas have been pursued in a meaningful way,
so as to maximize the benefits of the outdoor Wi-Fi technology. This means that locations
that are frequented by students and have features that would encourage usage have
been the primary recipients. The initial phases included some of the most popular locations with outdoor seating,
such as “the spine,” the Harpur Quad, the UU MarketPlace, the John Arthur Café, the
patio at the Nelson A Rockefeller Center, the UU Bus Stop and the Hinman Quad (which
is currently offline due to construction).
Starting in fall 2020, the implementation of outdoor Wi-Fi has taken on a new meaning
at Binghamton University as students, faculty and staff are now encouraged to socially
distance as much as possible. The availability of outdoor Wi-Fi increases the ability
of the Binghamton University community to follow this guidance during favorable weather.
In addition, during the summer of 2020, additional outdoor Wi-Fi was installed at parking lots G-1 and M-2, M-3, M-4 and M-5
in order to give commuter students who would like to maximize social distance an additional
option to do so while in their vehicles.
Signage indicated those outdoor spaces that have been purposefully covered by ITS
with Wi-Fi signal; these areas are also depicted on the included map. Keep in mind,
Wi-Fi technology uses radio waves as its transmission medium, so even though an area is not marked with a sign or on our map, it may still have incidental
signal available from a nearby building, and you can feel free to make use of it!
