Austin Peay buildings with wireless access include Woodward Library, Claxton, University Center, Sundquist Science Complex, music/mass communication, Kimbrough, Trahern, Marks, McReynolds, Clement and Browning.

“This coverage extends beyond the walls of the buildings so that areas surrounding them have coverage, also,” Taylor said. “We made a special effort to ensure that the courtyard area outside the UC had wireless coverage, since the signal was available in the front of the building and the bowl areas.” For more information, telephone Taylor at (931) 221-7113.Dennie B.
