City College plans to boost its signal

The days of spotty Wi-Fi connections may soon be coming to an end as San Diego Community College District is expected to finish rolling out Wi-Fi at City College by June 2012.

“The last two years we have been retrofitting existing buildings on the City campus per the City College IT Council priority,” Said Kent Keyser, Director of Information Technology for SDCCD, in an email.

The cost of the retrofitting is between $10,000 and $15,000 each year per campus.

The buildings currently under construction will have Wi-Fi in the classrooms and common areas on their completion.

The A,C,M and T buildings are in line to recieve Wi-Fi in the future.

Keyser did point out that some of the rooms in the C Building may have Wi-Fi due to work already done to Curran Plaza.

To connect to City College’s wireless network one has to go to, and click on “Click here to get your City Campus Wireless Access Code”.

From there you will be prompted to input your City student ID number and your last name.

The following screen will have the a password to connect to the campus Wi-Fi as well as the use policy, security information and contact information for outages.
