Getting Connected


Each residence hall room is set up to provide wireless internet access to "RezNet", which is the residence hall data network. Students connect to RezNet through "eduroam" to use laptops, tablets and mobile devices. The "eduroam" network is available in all buildings on campus. The "SIU-limited" network is available for game stations, media streaming devices and network TVs. Learn more online here.

Students may access the internet using any device with a wireless network adapter or by using a wireless sync device called a dongle (available online or at the SalukiTech Computer Store). Routers and wireless access points are not permitted. Instructions on connecting to RezNet are available here.

RezNet is maintained by the Office of Information Technology.

Limited wired access is available upon request through SalukiTech. This access requires a device with an Ethernet adapter, network cable (Category-5 with RJ-45 connectors), and an Ethernet switch (if connecting two or more devices).

For computer support, wired access, and questions regarding Mobile Dawg, contact SalukiTech.


Be sure to read the instructions here to prepare your TV for your cable connection.
