ResNet is short for Residential Hall Networking. Although it is not mandatory to have a computer on campus each room in the residential halls has wireless access to connect your personal computer to the college's network.
You will be required to authenticate your computer before you can use the network. Your computer will be checked for critical viruses and security holes in Windows. You will be prompted to update your computer if needed. Instructions and information are available in the ResNet packet which you can pickup at the ResNet booth on move in day. If you have trouble connecting to the network you can bring your computer (and the powercord for laptops), to the Help Desk in Tower 2410.
The Clean Access Agent is software that scans your computer for critical updates and patches. You will have to download and install this agent before you can use the Internet. If you do not already have this agent installed, an automatic download prompt will be displayed when you try to access the Internet. This software is used to help minimize security risks and reduce the spread of computer viruses. The Clean Access Agent will not allow you to use the internet if you do not have all necessary patches. Information on how to load the Clean Access Agent will be included in the ResNet packet available at our ResNet booth on Welcome Weekend, or from the Help Desk in the Tower 2410 after Welcome Weekend.
Windows XP or newer; and/or Mac OS X 10.4 or newer are compatible on our network.
You will be held responsible and could be prosecuted for any illegal activity. If the College is notified of any wrongdoings involving the network, we will be bound by the law to reveal the identity of the offender. More information on the College's network policy can be found on the computer and networkpolicy page.
