Fiber cables serving Denman Hall were accidentally damaged by a construction crew Thursday, affecting service to the UAB network, physical security network and Apogee ResNet at the residence hall.

Telephone service at Denman was not affected.

Construction crews have begun replacing the conduit and fiber cables, with service estimated to be restored by early next week.

We apologize for the interruption of service, which was out of our control.

Effective July 14, 2014, student access to both wired and wireless networks in UAB’s student dormitories – Blazer, Blount, Camp, Denman and Rast Halls – has been moved to a separate non-UAB network.

All dorms are now served through Apogee ResNet Service, and students should direct all questions or concerns about connecting to the wired or wireless network in their dorms directly to the Apogee Help Line at 866-478-8865.

Outside the dorms, students should continue to connect their devices to the UAB WiFi network. For directions, click here.
