Each campus of the University presented unique challenges for the implementation of the WiFi access points and technology. The project team had to assess each installation based on the best WiFi coverage maps and physical placement of the WiFi infrastructure.
The Google campus maps are continously updated with new WiFi access points - please see the short URLs below for each campus.
You can also look for the official WiFi signage indoors or outside buildings, which indicate WiFi coverage for the specific area on the campus grounds. The official UP wireless network signage looks like this (reduced in size for demonstration purposes):
UP WiFi areas are now visible on the Google maps of the various campuses, click on the campus link below and then type 'UP WiFi" in the search panel of Google Maps. All the available WiFi hot spot areas will be displayed for that specific campus:
