Wireless installation subsidy

To expand faculty and staff access to the PAWS-Secure wireless network, the Office of the Vice President for Information Technology is offering a 50 percent subsidy toward installation of new PAWS-Secure wireless access.

The university offers PAWS-Secure throughout campus to areas primarily used by students through funds provided by the Student Technology Fee. For faculty and staff areas, wireless service is charged to departments.

To qualify for a subsidy, PAWS-Secure must be in areas primarily used by faculty and staff offices or meeting and collaboration spaces. A total of $100,000 will be made available through the program in fiscal year 2015 and will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Departments should request a quote for PAWS-Secure wireless service by using the form available at After a quote is received from EITS, it should be forwarded to the VPIT office with a memo seeking a 50 percent subsidy.
