Access to network resources is governed by a reasonable use policy, and use of a connection indicates your acceptance of these conditions.
Wireless via UWNet
Students at UW-Madison, including residents living in University Residence Halls can connect for free to UWNet, UW-Madison’s wireless network service. To connect, simply select the network on a device and open a web browser which redirects to a login page.
All rooms have at least one active data jack that you can connect to with an ethernet cable and share. When a device is connected to the jack you can select UWNet and then open a web browser which will redirect you to a login page. If you need an ethernet cable they are available for purchase at any Housing Dining convenience store, DoIT Tech Store, or at the University Apartments Community Center.
Securing Your Computer
It is extremely important that your computer is secure while accessing any campus network resources. If your computer becomes compromised it will be removed from network access until it is repaired.
Configuring a Secure Wireless Access Point
University Housing requires that all personal wireless access points are configured securely. This ensures that the owner of the wireless access point knows exactly who is connecting to it. You are responsible for all network traffic that passes through your access point.
