Wireless Coverage at Tarleton's Stephenville Campus

Where is wireless connectivity available on the Stephenville campus?

Tarleton offers wireless “hotspots” inside campus buildings for the convenience of our students, faculty and staff.  Hotspots are areas designed to provide wireless coverage for a limited range of access.  Tarleton hotspots are intended for basic connectivity to the internet -- for example to check your e-mail and browse the web. 

Information Technology Services (ITS) is currently reviewing options to continue to expand the wireless coverage on the main campus.

Is wireless connectivity provided in the Residence Halls?

Internet services, including some wireless hotspots, for students residing in Residential Living and Learning facilities are provides by Apogee, Inc.  For more information please refer to http://www.tarleton.edu/housing/technology.html.
