Access to UBC Secure Wireless Network

UBC wireless network has been installed in the Blusson Spinal Cord Centre, Jack Bell Research Centre, Robert H.N. Ho Research Centre and the VGH Research Pavilion.

The service is identical to that found in many facilities across the Point Grey and VGH campuses. Instructions on how to connect, or for any related questions, please visit the wireless Quick Start Guide on the UBC IT website.

UBC wireless is not meant to replace existing services, rather we expect it will enhance current technology.
