Network Access in Dorms 

All dorms are connected to the campus network via Ethernet. ResNet, the dorm network, is now managed by Apogee. Students may use a hub or switch and connect 2 computers (per login). Routers are specifically not allowed. There is additional bandwidth set for one gaming device (X-box, etc.) each. Wireless access is available in all areas of the dorms including dorm rooms. For more information, see:

The dorms also have small computer labs providing access to the University Network and the Internet. Admission to these labs is gained by residents swiping their ID cards.

General Access Computer Labs 

UNT’s 14 General Access Labs are open to anyone with a valid UNT ID card. There are labs throughout the main Denton campus, one at the Research Park, and one at the UNT Dallas Campus. The lab in the Information Science Library (ISB 110) has adaptive hardware and software for students with special needs. For more information, including lab hours, see:
