Residence Hall Network (Resnet)
Resnet (Residence Hall Network) provides both wireless and wired internet service to the university's residence halls.
Resnet Wi-Fi Service:
- Protocols: 802.11a/g/n/ac/ax (exact protocols may vary by location due to age of equipment)
- Authentication: 802.1x (using UT EID) or WPA2-PSK (requires self-registration)
Resnet Wired Service:
- 10/100/1000Base-T Ethernet port (availability of ports in rooms may vary)
- Authentication: 802.1x (using UT EID) or device registration (using UT EID and device's MAC address)
All users must abide by the university's Acceptable Use Policy.
There are no longer charges for data plans.
Please note: as with other campus resources, we expect that our UT community will use the network with the understanding that it is a shared resource as outlined in the Acceptable Use Policy. ITS will, as it does for other computing resources, manage excessive consumption and may limit individual users’ speeds to ensure good performance for all users. ITS will communicate with individuals consuming excessive data to determine if there is an academic need behind the usage and how to support it. Individuals limited because of excess consumption will still be able to use the network for standard academic or business functions (e.g. data access is fast enough for Canvas, web browsing, and common Internet applications).
Technical support is available during university business hours - typically M-F 8:00am to 5:00pm (excluding university holidays).
Routine requests are typically addressed within one business day. UT Service Desk staff may escalate requests as needed.
The Resnet service has an availability SLA of 99.9% for the core system.
Individual ports / rooms do not have a set SLA and are handled on an as-available basis during university business hours.
