Wireless connections are available all over inside and outside at Western Michigan University. Besides the wired jacks in each room, wireless is also available at Western View apartments and in the residence halls, individual rooms and the public areas.
Wireless connections are less secure than wired connections. If you choose to use a wireless connection, you should be cautious about what sort of information you transmit. For example, if you visit websites that require a login name and password, or credit card information or other personal information, be aware that the information you enter is not secure and consider using the virtual private network.
