Network Connections in Your Residence Hall

Get connected to the Internet from any Cornell Residence Hall

Cornell student housing is a Wi-Fi community, providing connectivity to the campus network and access to the Internet. Wi-Fi is available in most university residence halls and some fraternities and sororities. Students should connect to the eduroam Wi-Fi network.

Active wired network jacks in residence halls/houses are accessible for use with computers or other network-ready devices. This includes routers, game consoles, Internet-ready TVs, streaming video receivers, etc. The process for network registration has been standardized and consolidated into a single system. As a result of this change, a registered device can be used on any active jack on campus administered by CIT. To register a device, please see the Cornell Network Registration and Security System page.
