NYU and Abilene Christian University also saw crashes.

It looks like iOS 7’s release managed to crash NYU wifi @jwherrman:

Attn ACU students: stop downloading ios7 to all 9 of your devices for a sec so I can use the Internet. Pls? I need to watch breaking bad.

Of course, it's a little ridiculous that any of these schools were forced to ask students not to download an update that was very publically announced months ago. A university's wireless Internet can't crash. It's more important now than any physical classroom, and, within five years, will probably be more important than a library. As lectures gravitate online, and coursework becomes digital, university networks are going to be under more and more strain in the coming years.

So yeah, fix your shit, NYU, ACU, et al. Thousands of bros need to stream Game of Thrones uninterrupted next year.
