Your Computer & ResNet

COVID RELATED CONNECTION NOTICE: DUE TO THE INCREASED ONLINE ACADEMIC CURRICULUM AND REQUIREMENTS, IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT STUDENTS BRING ETHERNET CABLES TO HARD WIRE THEIR COMPUTERS FOR UNINTERRUPTED CONNECTIVITY IN THE RESIDENCE HALLS. FOR MOST ROOMS, A 20-30 FT. ETHERNET CABLE WILL SUFFICE. STUDENTS WITH DEVICES LACKING A BUILT-IN ETHERNET JACK WILL ALSO NEED A USB TO RJ45/ETHERNET ADAPTOR.

A primary objective in the University's strategic plan for developing information technology facilities is to create a state-of-the-art data network that is fully accessible to all members of the University community. Over the past several years we have undertaken and completed several major network development projects to provide network access from all university buildings, including the ResNet system in the on-campus student residences.

Many students living in Purdue's student residences have questions about using computers in their rooms and apartments. The ResNet help desk is a resource for assistance in helping you connect your devices in your residence hall.

What is ResNet?

ResNet stands for Residential Networks and is the service that allows you to connect your personal devices to the campus network, either wirelessly with PAL3.0 or by using an industry standard Ethernet connection. The service also provides a shared connection to the Internet and is the service used by most students living in the residence halls and university-operated apartments. You can also connect directly to campus via VPN.

Note: Students assigned to Purdue Village Apartments and University Residences Boiler Apartments will have high-speed internet service provided by local providers. Connection information at these locations will be provided upon check-in.
