Campus Wi-Fi Coverage

Radio frequency (RF) around campus is random due to the university's size and initial wireless deployments. Physical impediments such as thick walls, metal structures and trees all interfere with RF propagation. Being located in downtown San Jose also introduces RF interference from buildings adjacent to campus. For more information, view:

Campus Wi-Fi Coverage

Our team is committed to improving Wi-Fi networking on campus by enhancing coverage. However, in some cases it may be more feasible to use wired ethernet service instead of wireless.


Wi-Fi Access Points

There are more than 2100 wireless access points deployed on the campus. The network runs on 802.11n technology and improves rogue Access Point (AP) and intrusion detection, central management operations, guest access services and more.

SJSU only provides wireless network service inside of the university buildings. There is no SJSU Wi-Fi network service outdoors at this time. For more information, see Wireless Network Expansion Project.
