Specified areas on campus open to free, drive-up internet access
MANSFIELD, Pa. – Mansfield University Campus Technologies has made the university’s wireless network more accessible in specified areas of campus for community members who need to connect to the internet.
“We understand that many of our commuter students, as well as members of our community, do not have home internet access and their usual points of access may not be available since some businesses are closed,” said President Charles Patterson. “Making campus Wi-Fi more accessible allows our friends in the community to continue accessing important information online.”
Mansfield University’s expansive wireless network extends outdoors and into many of the campus parking lots. Anyone in need of internet can drive-up to the specified locations on campus and connect to the Mounties Mobile Guest wireless network free of charge. The following locations are available for community members to utilize campus internet from their vehicle:
