The Residence Hall Network (known as “ResNet“) provides an Ethernet based network connection in every residential dorm room. This network connection provides access to the greater campus network and the Internet at speeds comparable to home broadband connections.
This service is available to all resident students who have a personal computer or game console equipped with an appropriate network interface and is funded through a fee in your Room Rent. In order to use ResNet you will need a computer or device that has an Ethernet adapter and meets the minimum requirements needed.
