Entrance Kiosks Program

New Kiosks at major entrances on campus

In partnership with Student Government IT will soon be introducing free standing entrance kiosks at major entry points around campus. These units will allow visitors to interact with information in ways we have not previously experienced on campus. Similar to the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) kiosk program these York devices will have information available that would be important to visitors like how to get around campus, events, as well as traffic, weather and even the ability to know if there are available computers in the Library for use. IT is currently working with Buildings and Grounds in order to insure locations have adequate power and network infrastructure and we have also partnered with Public Safety and Facilities Management in order to insure proper placement and security measures are all in compliance the installation of these types of helpful and welcoming systems. We expect to start rolling them out in May of 2019 and have full functionality by years end of 2019.
