Crowdsourcing Wireless Coverage Issues with Twitter

Help us crowdsource Brown’s WiFi coverage issues! Report areas with no or low coverage by tweeting the location with the hash tag #brownwifi.


  • Be as specific as possible about the location. Include the building, floor number, and room number or landmark to help us find the spot.

  • We can only see public tweets – and for privacy reasons, don’t tweet the location of your dorm room. You can always email coverage issues to

  • We won’t be able to assist you at the location - the hash tag is just for reporting areas with low or no wireless access.  Immediate or unrelated issues should be reported as usual to the IT Service Center (, 3-4357).
  • If you’re on Twitter, follow us at @ITatBrown for tech updates.
