Technology Fast Facts


Our campus network consists of 500 miles of fiber optic cable. That's enough to stretch from Lewisburg to Montreal, with a few miles to spare!

There are over 900 classroom and lab computers on campus. Almost every first year student could be seated at a computer in a classroom or lab somewhere on campus simultaneously.

900 wireless access points spread out all over campus ensure almost complete wireless coverage no matter where you go. Beginning in the fall, we'll be at over 1,000.  We're also beginning to roll out the newest wireless standard, 802.11ac (commonly referred to as Gigabit WiFi), with the next deployment of access points.

There are 12,000 ethernet connections on Bucknell's campus. That's twice as many connections as Lewisburg has permanent residents.

Bucknell's network sends and receives 2.7 billion "packets" of information every day. That's a lot of information
