Residence WiFi renewal project

Over the past two years Information Technology’s network infrastructure team worked hard at ensuring that all SU campus residences are equipped to provide effective WiFi network access to students.

As the project is drawing to a close, we can recap and provide statistics.

Nearly 1500 WiFi access points were installed of which 571 over the December/January holidays. The last, outstanding WiFi hotspots will be installed during the June/July holiday time period.

The following number of WiFi hotspots were installed over the holidays:

Stellenbosch campus:

Huis De Villiers               67

Dagbreek                          89

Metanoia                          186

Huis McDonald               37

Helderberg installations will be completed at the end of February while Minerva is scheduled for the June 2020 slot. Due to construction at Goldfields installing WiFi points wasn’t possible, but is scheduled for when construction is completed.
