Wireless Coverage

The Butler University wireless network is available at speeds of up to 600Mbps in all academic, residential and administrative buildings (note: Butler Terrace and South Campus Apartments have wireless provided by Spectrum). Actual connection speeds will vary based on many factors, including the number of active devices and interference from prohibited devices. While many outdoor areas are covered with wireless today, we are currently completing upgrades to provide an indoor wireless experience to the majority of outdoor spaces on campus.
