Connectivity Options

Wireless. All residence halls are equipped with wireless connectivity throughout.

Lamson Hall—Certain rooms are equipped with two network ports. Other rooms are wireless-only.
Meier Hall—Rooms in Meier Hall have one or two wired network ports.
Burman Hall—Rooms are equipped with two network ports.
Damazo Hall—Rooms are wifi only.

Wireless Routers. Wireless routers are not prohibited in the residence halls. However, where applicable, it is advised that the wireless functionality be turned off to not degrade wireless performance due to multiple wireless signals interfering with each other. Consult your device documentation on how to turn off wireless functionality.

If you experience issues with either wired or wireless connectivity, email the ITS Helpdesk at or contact the Computer Support Line at 269-471-6016.
