You don't need any special software. You just need to have an Internet browser installed such as Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or Internet Explorer. You will, however, be required to install the SafeConnect policy key which is used for authentication on the campus network.
How can I connect to the residence halls wireless network?
Please see our page on wireless Internet access.
How can I connect my gaming console to the ResHalls network?
For the best experience it is recommended you connect your gaming console to one of the Ethernet ports in your room via an Ethernet cable. Cables are provided free to all students and can be picked up at the ResNet office. When your console is physically connected, go through your console's network set up system and ensure that DHCP is set to dynamic. Once this is done you will have full access to the Internet over your gaming console.
