Kids Connect

WVU Tech is a member of West Virginia Kids Connect, a wifi access initiative designed to help students stay connected during the global COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. If your student needs to connect to the internet for online learning, we have a special hotspot set up on the Beckley campus in the parking lots along Alabama Avenue (behind the Innovation Building).
