In Gary, IU Northwest has announced free drive-up internet access to help Region residents cope with the statewide COVID-19 stay-at-home order. Members of the community are invited to utilize IUN’s “Hot Spot Lot”, located in the main parking area closest to the Moraine Student Center, without leaving their cars. Indiana Lt. Governor Suzanne Crouch applauded the move which is being implemented by Indiana University campuses statewide. University officials say the IU Northwest guest network should be treated like any public access point, and users should be aware that security is the same as any other public wireless network. It is also not known how long the availability of this service will last. Here is a link for more information.
