In addition, Resnetx is available in the following public locations in the residence halls:

  • Maya Angelou Room (Cuarto DC)
  • Regan Main
  • Segundo and Tercero Academic Advising Centers
  • First floor television lounge in the Tercero Services Center
  • Segundo High Rise First Floor Lounges & Study Rooms

  • Miller Study Room
  • Thompson Main Lounge
  • Leach TV Room, Study Lounge, and Rec Room (L113, L116, L117)
  • Webster & Emerson Study Rooms

Personal Wireless Networks

Student Housing policy does not allow personal wireless access points in locations where Resnetx is available due to interference with Resnetx service. Over the next two years, as we continue to renovate our facilities, Resnetx will be available in all residence halls.

If your residence hall does not have Resnetx service, you may install a personally owned wireless access device. RCA assistance is available to help with this setup and self-help instructions are also available on the Housing Computing Website

You are responsible for all network traffic that goes through your network port, including wireless communications, so it's your job to make sure your wireless network is secure. You really don't want to get a first DMCA violation, especially because of someone else's actions, because a second DMCA violation will lead to permanent port deactivation—no network access at all—and even the loss of the privilege to use the campus wireless network. Be sure to practice safe and secure computing when using your personal wireless device (enable encryption, do not share the login password, etc.).
