What is ResNet WiFi?

ResNet WiFi 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 WiFi is active in all single-student residence rooms (with the exception of West Residence), and the cost is included in your residence fees. Click here for more information about ResNet.

In West Residence, internet access is provided by an external internet service provider, and is included in your residence fees.



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 Housing Portal if your number changes. Your cell phone number on file with us will only be used in the event of an emergency.
