When students arrive at their college housing, you can expect their bags to be packed with clothes, toiletries, bedding and at least 3 different mobile devices. The advancement of technology has hit the higher education sector making reliable Wi-Fi an essential utility tool for student housing. Whether you live on campus in the dorms or off campus in student housing, the need to have reliable Wi-Fi is a must.
