Technology Solutions continues to roll out improvements to the university’s wireless infrastructure, and is happy to announce that enhanced outdoor Wi-Fi coverage is now available on East and West campus locations. The current expansion includes areas frequented by students near many of our busiest buildings.

With these enhancements, the UIC Community will have a wider range of access to Wi-Fi services throughout campus both inside and outside of classrooms and buildings. Visit accc.uic.edu/news-stories/improved-wifi for maps of the wireless access points on East and West Campuses.

National Cyber Security Awareness Month
In honor of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, beginning October 5, Technology Solutions will launch a weekly campaign that highlights specific cyber threats, shares best practices, and educates the community on the importance of cybersecurity.

This year’s theme is Dragons & Dungeons! Keep your eyes open for the weekly campaign featuring fun custom Zoom backgrounds and digital posters with helpful tips! Stay updated by visiting go.uic.edu/NCSAM.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

The Academic Computing & Communications Center (ACCC) has recently undergone organizational changes in an effort to enhance support for UIC’s innovation initiatives and academic mission.

We are happy to announce that the ACCC brand is being retired in favor of a new, overarching brand that better represents the central IT functions within the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Innovation. This new brand is: Technology Solutions.

This name change not only simplifies our identity to the UIC community of students, faculty and staff, but also marks another step in improvement initiatives for central IT at UIC. While we are maintaining our accc.uic.edu website for the time being, you will see branding updates to our website and communication channels.
