The WiFi Upgrade project has upgraded more than 50% of the hardware on the Ann Arbor campus to WiFi 6E! Completed buildings include the Campus Safety Services building, Hatcher Graduate Library, the Union and Palmer Commons, Ross School of Business, and Wolverine Tower. More buildings on Central Campus are on the schedule for January and February.
New dates are added regularly as the team works with each building’s leadership. Visit the Building Status page to see when the locations you visit and work in are scheduled to be upgraded.
When teams are onsite to do the upgrade, a temporary WiFi outage lasting 10-30 minutes or less will occur in the area immediately surrounding where the work is being performed. As hardware is swapped out, upgraded wireless connectivity will return. Wired connections will not be interrupted.
The upgrade project replaces existing AP hardware in more than 225 locations, including academic, administrative, and residence hall buildings, and outdoor areas. Additionally, UM-Dearborn is funding upgrades to indoor and outdoor Wi-Fi across its campus. Each building is typically upgraded in one day or less.
