Once you're connected you have access to anything on the Internet.  If you have a gaming console, like an Xbox, or Playstation, we recommend you register it following these instructions.

Tip:  Use the wired port in your room for your gaming devices to get a better experience


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.
