Is Wi-Fi available in the residence halls?
Yes. There are more than 1,000 access points providing Wi-Fi access throughout all residential buildings.
The BearNet Secure Wi-Fi network is available in residential and non-residential buildings and offers a fully-encrypted connection. We strongly recommend that students use BearNet Secure on laptops, desktop computers, mobile phones, and tablets.
My device can't use Wi-Fi. Can I have a wired connection to the Internet?
Yes. Students who have a Wi-Fi access point in their room can connect a wired device directly to the access point.
Student rooms that don't have a Wi-Fi access point are equipped with wired network jacks (one per resident).
Students need to provide their own Ethernet cable. Ethernet cables can be purchased from the ResNet helpdesk. ($5 for 10ft cable; $10 for 25ft cable)
