In an email sent to Spectator, CUIT announced that it has instated a new wireless network, which would involve UNI-authentication to increase wireless security. This new wireless system, called “Columbia U Secure”, which is similar in style to Barnard’s WiFi, spans through Morningside Heights and Manhattanville. For more information, read the newsletter CUIT sent out. Access to Columbia’s old, unauthenticated wireless will still be available.
