Campus Network Housing - Identifying Hospitality Access Points

Aruba Hospitality Access Points (HAPs) have been installed in the following residence halls: Adams, Barnard, Bradley, Chadbourne, Cole, Davis, Dejope, Kronshage, Leopold, Merit, Ogg, Phillips, Sellery, Slichter, Smith, Sullivan, Tripp, Waters, and Witte. Each residence hall room will have its own HAP, which functions as a Wireless Access Point (WAP) broadcasting wireless network (SSID) UWNet. Depending on the residence hall, HAPs may have one or three Ethernet jacks for wired connections.

Residents should not remove HAPs from the wall or obstruct HAPs with furniture or other large objects.

Each HAP will be clearly labelled with a unique identifier (as highlighted in the One-Ethernet Jack HAP picture), as in the examples below.
