Wired Network for Residence Halls

ResNet provides high-speed wired Internet service and the DragonFly3 wireless network to all students living in University residence halls and select Greek housing.


To connect your computer to the wired network, plug your Ethernet cable into the jack which is typically located in the lower left (or just the lower) position of the wire station in your bedroom or common room. Not all jacks in a wire station have active service. Check the list of active network jacks to locate where service is enabled.
