UPDATE – 8/15/2015:
The residential wireless expansion project is now complete, and all residence halls have 100% NUwave access. Current information about secure wireless network can be found on the NUwave service page.
UPDATE – Summer 2015:
On August 15, 2015, all Northeastern-owned residential buildings will have 100% NUwave access, and a ban on all personally-owned wireless routers and/or wireless access points will go into effect in these buildings. After August 15, 2015, any pre-existing personally-owned wireless routers and/or wireless access points must be disconnected. If you are moving into residential housing this fall, please do NOT bring your own router.
Starting Fall 2014, ITS will continue the expansion of wireless access within university-owned residence halls, achieving 100 percent coverage for the start of the 2015-2016 academic year. Over the summer, in partnership with Housing and Residential Life, ITS added secure NUwave wireless network access to 17 halls. Below is a list of the buildings slated for the second and final phase of the expansion, to be completed by Move-In in late August/September 2015. This list will be updated weekly during the project. The full list of buildings that have 100% NUwave coverage can be found here.
Work will be completed in two stages – first wires are pulled and new wireless access points are installed, then Facilities returns within a few weeks to patch and paint the impacted installation areas. NUwave can be accessed using your myNEU username and password. Students will also have access to ResNet, the wired network, for high speed internet access. Once a building has NUwave up and running you will not be able to use a router to create your own wireless network.

Details about the installation process
In order to provide NUwave access within residence halls, ITS must install new wireless access points throughout each building. The location of these wireless access points will include hallways, common rooms and bedrooms – exact locations will vary based on the building. If your apartment is going to be directly impacted, Housing and Residential Life will reach out to you as the project moves forward. Work will only occur between 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. during weekdays (Monday-Friday) and residents do not need to be present at the time of the installation. During the conversion, Facilities will follow up all ITS work to patch and paint any surfaces affected by the installation process. All personnel doing this work will be escorted by a Northeastern staff member to ensure security. Staff will knock prior to entering an apartment.
