Undergraduate Residences: New User Checklist

Get ready for Residence WiFi and/or Phone services by completing the essential checklist before move-in.

Wi-Fi Internet access (AirYorkPLUS) and wired Internet access (ResNet) are provided in all undergraduate residence rooms and is included in the residence fees.  Please note that the use of WiFi routers is NOT permitted in the Undergraduate Residences and it will result in the port being disabled.

Phone service is optional at additional fee and telephone set will no longer be provided (with the exception of Winters, Calumet, Founders, Hilliard or Wood Residences where a VoIP phone will be provided).  Please visit the website for detailed information on how to order Phone service.
