Student Housing Services is pleased to announce that, in conjuction with Computing and Communication Services (CCS), we have completed a project this summer to install over 1500 new WiFi access points (APs) throughout our main campus residence buildings. This was the first phase in our plan to bring WiFi to residence. Work will continue to expand coverage in common areas in residence going forward.
**THE USE OF PERSONAL WIRELESS ROUTERS IN RESIDENCE IS NOT PERMITTED
* West Residence at 78 College Ave. W. is excluded, but will continue to offer high-speed unlimited ResNet through direct ethernet link.
What is ResNet?
ResNet is a high-speed internet service with unlimited access to Internet services and the World Wide Web. Faster than a standard data line, the higher-speed network also gives you access to University of Guelph resources such as e-mail, electronic conferencing, and the Library's Trellis catalogue.
ResNet is active in all single-student residence rooms, and the cost is included in your residence fees. Click this link for more information about ResNet.
Residence rooms do not have telephones. Students without their own mobile phone will have access to a common phone located at each Service Desk area.
We ask you to provide your cell phone number when you apply, and to update it in MyHousing if your number changes. Your cell phone number on file with us will only be used in the event of an emergency.
