Union now offering wireless network

The Kansas Union now offers wireless connectivity to students, faculty and staff in the first KU Wireless Zones in the union’s public areas, thanks in part to $50,000 contributed by students through tuition enhancement technology funds.

The 77-year-old Kansas Union now features wireless access to the KU network on each level. For security reasons, users will need a KU online ID to take advantage of the KU Wireless Zones.

Academic Computing Services will provide technical support for users at the Jay Tech Booth on the fourth floor. More Wireless Zones are planned for locations across campus throughout the next year.

History Web site gets financial boost

The Historic Mount Oread Fund will donate $11,000 to the “This Week in KU History” Web site project at KU.

The contribution will underwrite 10 new articles about aspects of campus architectural history as well as a redesign of the Historic Mount Oread Fund Web site. The newly designed site will be at

Topics to be covered in this new series of articles will include Prairie Acre, the old KU Powerhouse; Pioneer Cemetery and Twente Hall.
