Wireless Access In Undergraduate Residences - FREE!

New for this year!

We are excited to announce that students living in the Undergraduate Residences (with the exception of those living in Founders Residence) will have access to an enhanced wireless and wired internet.

AirYorkPLUS provides wireless interent access to York Undergrad Residences featuring improved security, performance, convenience and mobility.

How do I connect?

  • If you have a device running Windows Operating system, run the AirYorkPLUS Setup Application (Windows only).  Once you configure your Wi-Fi client (laptop or tablet/smartphone, etc.), the client will atutomatically connect to AirYorkPLUS as soon as it is within range of an AirYorkPLUS access point.
  • Access to AirYorkPLUS requires a Passport York login and password.
  • Security: network traffic is encrypted between the client and the AirYorkPLUS access point.
  • Better performance in high-density settings such as lecture halls and libraries where many Wi-Fi clients are active simultaneously.
  • IMPORTANT: Most performance improvement are available only to Wi-Fi devices with dual-band radios. For further details, please consult UIT's recommendations on selecting/purchasing a Wi-Fi client device for use.
  • WiFi-Info provides access to information about Wi-Fi service and setup.

UIT Service Outage Notice:

Friday October 24, 2014 11:30 AM - Founder Residence network

Due to a component failure in Founders residence, network drops in part of the building are experiencing network access problems. There is evidence that this problem may have developed as early as Oct 21 for some users.

At 12:00 PM today the network switch servicing this part of the building was rebooted in an attempt to recover services but at this time services still are not restored. UIT Network Operations is working on the problem and will send updates.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.
