About CLUWnet

The CLUWnet pilot project was implemented in September 2002, providing wireless networking coverage to originally 7 buildings.  Now the CLUWnet network has been expanded to include all residential halls, academic buildings and certain outdoor areas.

CLUWnet is a WiFi compliant 802.11 a/b/g/n network, employing industry standard and widely adopted technologies for widest compatibility with wireless network cards and operating systems.

With CLUWnet, users are no longer confined to a desk or a room, but can make use of other indoor and some outdoor locations to connect to the Internet, send and receive e-mail and even conduct research.
