Wireless For On Campus Residents

Each residence hall room has one wired connection to the University network. See below for a list of halls with wireless provided by the University. If you wish to connect more than one computer to the network in a single room, you can do so by purchasing a Wireless Access Point. For your convenience, you can purchase this with preconfigured security from IT Solution Center, located in the David L. Eisler Center, room 108. You may also purchase one before coming to campus, but please make sure that the network access device you purchase is NOT a router. Any room with a router will have its connectivity shut off.  

The indoor wireless network is available in most public areas used by students, in academic
buildings, and in a majority of administrative buildings.

Wireless connectivity is available in all rooms in these residence locations:

  • Bond
