On the afternoon of Wednesday, November 22, there was the second Permanent Student Commission of our mandate.
Many topics are at the table: approval of cultural and sports activities, treated as usual in this period, approval of the registration of two new associations, management of spaces and Wi-Fi expansion in the residences.
Specifically, after the approval of the cultural and sports activities and the registration of the new associations: BEA (Biomedical engineering association) and the Muslim Students Association, we began to talk about the spaces.
Given the planned modernization works, which will involve the Bonardi campus from next year, we began to ask how the most critical situations of closure of classrooms or study spaces will be managed. The University will present the project to us in the coming months and from this we will have the opportunity to know the details and timing.
The project to extend the coverage of the University's Wi-Fi in all residences was also presented by the director of ASICT (ICT services area). This aims to cover all the spaces of each residence, including the residents' rooms, with the Wi-Fi network by the year 2018. With the same intervention we will make sure to make the wired network accessible only with a certificate, to prevent guests from installing personal access points that can interfere with the Wi-Fi signal.
We believe this is an important success and a sign of the centrality of the commitment in the residences of the Polytechnic. We are also very satisfied, given that we were particularly committed to this point during the election campaign.
Certainly there is still a lot to do, but we believe there is the right attention from the organs of the University to achieve important improvements.
