When students return from spring break Monday, they will find access to Netflix, Hulu, Spotify, Pandora and other streaming services blocked in academic buildings on the West Lafayette, Ind., campus if they’re using university WiFi. System updates to Apple devices will also be banned. The prohibition is the result of a pilot program run by Purdue during the fall that blocked student access to five streaming sites in four lecture halls. Since then, the program has been extended to other academic spaces on campus and the list of banned streaming services has grown. University officials said they are not aware of other schools with similar bans.
