Not all classrooms have wireless networking. This will improve over the next few years as campus cabling is upgraded. Even when wireless networking is available, using the wired connection for presentations is recommended as it is usually more reliable and faster. 

Please note that the wireless network was designed to cover common areas so any coverage of classrooms is incidental, is not a listed feature of the classrooms and may not be strong enough to use for essential teaching tasks. 

The campus wireless network map can be found here:

Click on the area and then the building your classroom is in. Areas that have wireless coverage are indicated in green. These maps were created when the wireless network was installed and are approximate representations of coverage.
