‘newschool-housing’ is available throughout Kerrey Hall at University Center and in the common areas of the 13th Street, 20th Street, Stuyvesant Park, and Loeb Hall residences.
‘newschool-housing’ uses the IEEE 802.1x standard for authentication. This means that once you’ve signed your device onto the network the first time, it will automatically join the network every time you come in range, without you having to do anything. It also means that all your network traffic will be encrypted, preventing anyone from intercepting it.
