Default Wi-fi on School Campus?

Please Login to Remove!

Hey guys, I attend Drexel University. And in some of the lecture halls I suffer from lack of service (Tmobile).

I love Tmobile, but at times they can make life a little more tricky.

Can anyone tell me what would be required to connect to my School's wi-fi service?

Has anyone else on campus (Drexel/any school campus or work campus) successfully jumped onto their wi-fi?

UMA would also be a nice treat as I will be on UMA all day long if I can get it to work at school.

I assume you have WIFI.
Have you considered getting a data plan?

Yes, just talk to your school's IT department and I'm sure they can help fix you up.
