Caltech is in the final phase of our campus-wide wireless network refresh. As of September 30, 124 campus buildings, or 94% of the structures on campus have been upgraded. Outdoor access points were installed at ten targeted locations to support faculty, students, and staff in teaching, learning, and collaboration. The remaining houses on Hill and Wilson streets, and 1 administrative complex will be completed by year end.
Building Upgrade Schedule - Fall 2023

Caltech is partnering with Aruba and VectorUSA to design and implement an 802.11ac wireless network. This will be a multi-year effort, encompassing new controllers, more than 2,800 additional access points, authenticated guest access, and support for Internet of Things (IoT) devices where possible.
The project is coming to an end by December 2023. All buildings will use Caltech Secure, Caltech visitor or eduroam networks. When you find that you are not connected to wireless, go to WiFi settings on your device and find one of our local networks. Follow the prompts to login.
Check the map below for a list of completed buildings where you can use Caltech Secure and Caltech Visitor as well as the next scheduled buildings.
