What is the Digitally Connected Campus?

Bradley University is proud to be the first university in the country to leverage T-Mobile’s 5G Advanced Network Solutions (ANS) and Apple’s extensive higher education experience to create a student-centric Digitally Connected Campus.

The purpose of this partnership is to improve digital equity for students, advance student success, enrich the learning environment, create an ecosystem of innovation, and improve the university’s infrastructure and operations.

How does it work?

T-Mobile is providing significant investments in broader network infrastructure and additional services to implement this initiative with Bradley.

In Fall 2024, as part of this multi-year collaboration, students, full-time faculty, and certain student-facing staff will receive a 10th Generation iPad, complete with a Bradley-branded keyboard case and an unlimited T-Mobile data plan with hotspot capabilities.

T-Mobile’s 5G ANS allows Bradley to utilize a hybrid (private and public-facing) mobile network that provides faster speeds and dedicated reliability to enrich Bradley’s learning environment and create an ecosystem of innovation.

This effort, which has a total value of more than $30 million, is bolstered by Apple and its deep experience in education to offer training sessions, provide technical support through Apple Care, and help determine best practices to generate truly impactful outcomes across campus.

By putting an iPad powered by T-Mobile’s 5G ANS in each student’s hands, the Digitally Connected Campus will help bridge the digital divide between students, improving Bradley’s capacity to provide an equitable educational experience for all.
