50 - 100 Megabits Per Second (Mbps) Fast WiFi Wireless Internet Speeds for Students at Emory & Henry College

High Speed WiFi (Wireless Internet) at Emory & Henry CollegeWhen 1,000 students, all with numerous Internet-enabled devices, try to access the same Wi-Fi network, problems can and will happen.

To deal with these modern day traffic challenges, Emory & Henry College has continued to focus on the improvement to students' digital experiences, both now and in the future.

Upgrades during the past fall and spring to the campus network have included state-of-the-art Wi-Fi throughout residence halls, the creation of a comprehensive video solution that allows students to view television programming via traditional methods and their mobile devices, and establishment of the Campus Life Channel (CLC), which collects and distributes university content via Stream2/internet protocol television (IPTV).

This past spring the College used the CLC to distribute a live feed of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Championship swim meet, commencement and Ampersand Day, an annual event dedicated to highlighting student success.

The college will continue to offer students with almost instantaneous support 24 hours a day across multiple media platforms, including phone, chat, email and text should an issue arise.

Over the summer, upgrades have included the expansion of wireless services to administrative and academic areas including the library, academic buildings and the Martin-Brock Student Center.

To access college Wi-Fi and Internet services, new students need to visit and create an account. These credentials will be used to access both residential Internet as well as IPTV.
