Internet access has become a common necessity for communication and learning, and Drury University remains committed to bringing the best and latest in connectivity to its community.
That's why this fall, Drury rolled out ubiquitous Wi-Fi access across its Springfield campus, bringing Internet access to users anywhere on the university's more than 80 acres. As a result of the new Panthers wireless network, the Drury community can enjoy wireless Internet access in classrooms, common areas, residence halls, benches, parking lots and any other location on campus. The network is also compatible with most Internet-capable mobile devices.
Drury previously offered Wi-Fi coverage at various locations across campus, including hotspot coverage inside most buildings. What the campus lacked, however, was the ability for users to access the Internet anywhere and everywhere: walking between classes, learning in the outdoor classroom, or lounging under a towering oak tree. As students, faculty and staff continue to seek out new ways to stay connected in a technology-intensive learning environment, ubiquitous Wi-Fi allows for anytime, anywhere connectivity.
Members of the Drury community can find details on configuring their computer and mobile devices at Drury's online Technical Support center. Visitors will require a temporary login, which are available via the Help Desk at firstname.lastname@example.org or (417) 873-7300.
