The OSU wireless network is continuing to expand across campus, currently offering connectivity with over 3,300 access points in more than 190 buildings. Over 4,200 users have simultaneously used the wireless network, and more than 27,800 accounts are currently active. In addition to equipment expansion, new services have also been introduced with the debut of the OSU guest wireless network, which offers limited wireless connectivity to guests of faculty and staff.

The OSU wireless network provides high-speed Wi-Fi hotspots for Internet access throughout the Columbus campus, including student gathering areas such as shared classrooms, libraries, unions, residence halls, as well as other departmentally chosen locations.
