All desktops in the libraries are PCs. For information on where to find Macs on campus, visit OIT's Computer Lab Availability page.

Have Your Own Computer?
Connect to the Air Rowdy Wireless Network

UTSA's wireless network, Air Rowdy, is available at the John Peace Library, Downtown Campus Library and Special Collections at the HemisFair Park Campus. All UTSA students, faculty, staff and guests of the university can use the campus wireless network.

Traffic on the wireless network is encrypted for faculty and staff, and therefore is secure.  However, student and guest traffic on the wireless network is not encrypted, and therefore is unsecure.  It is recommended that Microsoft Forefront antivirus software be installed on all computers accessing the network.

For more information on wireless access at UTSA, please visit the Air Rowdy website. You may report any problems with the wireless network by contacting the UTSA OIT Support Services at (210) 458-5538.
