How your internet works

The network on-campus works differently than a home network. Internet is provided to you through two sources: a wireless network and a wired network. We have supplied hundreds of commercial wireless access points throughout all of our living locations in South Village and North Lake Village. However, the wireless network is a shared resource. This means that the more users who use a given wireless access point, the more likely users on that access point may experience slow performance and/or disconnecting from the network.
