Improved Wifi connections at Matina campus

In continuing to improve the learning experience of its students, the University of Mindanao recently launched new WiFi connections accessible in major convergence spots at the Matina campus.

The WiFi points can be accessed at the DPT building lobby, GET building lobby, Social Hall, BE building’s ground floor, the Hotel and Restaurant Management area, Senior Highschool, and soon for implementation in the Basic Education area.

The student needs only to key in their Student ID number as their username, while the default password of 1234 is provided. Students are encouraged to change the password immediately during first use by clicking the ‘Remember Me’ option and following the directions provided to change it.

It is open to all students, but there are certain limitations of bandwidth when downloading to discourage non-academic uses like streaming movies and music.

The project was mulled late last year and began implementation around the end of July.
