With phase three of the Distributed Antenna System (DAS) project complete, the University of Florida now has the largest DAS in U.S. higher education. It’s also the largest DAS ever undertaken in the U.S. by AT&T.

The DAS project, begun in 2012, increases the call volume capacity, cell phone coverage, and wireless performance that tens of thousands of students, faculty, staff, and campus visitors rely on each day. The expansion also provides a major boost of connectivity and performance for the 90,000+ Gator fans who descend on The Swamp for gameday Saturdays, for UF’s public safety needs, and for the medical personnel, patients, and their visitors across 11 buildings of UFHealth. UF’s DAS expansion by the numbers:

  • 1,427 antennas installed on the UFHealth campus
  • 312 antennas installed at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium
  • 33 wide-coverage outdoor antennas covering the Main campus

The next phase of the DAS project focuses on the university’s East Campus and the O’Connell Center. Anyone with questions about telecommunications at UF or about the distributed antenna system project may email Telecommunications Director John Madey.
