Wi-Fi Projects funded by CARES and HEERF (2020-2022)

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, CSULB applied for and received funding for expanding our Outdoor Wi-Fi program.  These projects often required significant costs to bring power and network cabling to Wi-Fi radios in locations far from buildings.  View current Outdoor Wi-Fi smart map.
