Residence Life has installed a comprehensive, state of the art, 802.11 b/g/n wireless network throughout student housing. As a result, students will not need, or be allowed to use, their own wireless routers.
The new network provides secure encrypted communications and authenticated access. The wireless network will enable students to roam from one Residence Life building to another and be able to connect in any building. This same wireless network has been deployed in all the campus buildings as well.
The current wired network will continue to exist in each Residence Life
building for any student devices that need a wired connection (i.e. desktops,
gaming consoles, internet enabled TVs).
