The university's excellent wireless infrastructure provides high-quality cell phone reception throughout the campus, making cell phones as reliable as traditional phones when using one of the university's participating carriers.
Verizon recently completed the installation of a new state-of-the-art cellular antenna system, which will ensure good connections, expanded bandwidth, and the provision of 4G LTE service for Verizon Wireless customers in campus buildings.
Other cellular carriers are encouraged to join this infrastructure in the future.
Cell phones from Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile USA subscribers will benefit from enhanced 2G or 3G indoor reception in the main campus and AU off-campus buildings, using the older distributed antenna system.
As a member of the AU community, you will want to be more connected than ever before. In an emergency, AU will use the communication tools the university has at its disposal in as timely a manner as possible using AU Alerts. These text and/or email messages will provide information on what is happening, what to do, and links to available additional information.
