Wired Network for Gaming Consoles, Streaming Devices, and SmartTVs

Each residence hall room is equipped with at least 2 active Ethernet network jacks. Be sure to register the Ethernet (wired) MAC address of your device, including any gaming, streaming or smartTV devices, in the MyDevices portal.  

Any unregistered devices connecting to the network will fail to gain Internet access.  Workgroup switches may work to add additional Ethernet ports in a residence hall room.

Note:  All rooms in Sweetland Hall are equipped with active wired connection jacks at the bottom of the white Cisco Access Points on the wall.


Students have access to a service called Eduroam to connect to wireless network. Eduroam is a global wireless service that allows students remain connected to network at any Minnesota state colleges and universities they visit.

Special Note Regarding Wireless Use in Residence Halls

Please refrain from using such devices as ‘personal WIFI routers’ and ‘hotspots’ while in the Residence Halls as they can interfere with the campus WIFI network and reduce the quality of service for everyone. Note that wireless printing capability is not supported in the Residence Hall network.
