The Rutgers University Office of Information Technology Residential Networking group provides residence hall students with high speed Ethernet connections. The residential network allows students to easily access University resources such as web pages and class schedules. Our ResNet support staff is available year round (including summer session!) to help you with network configuration and related problems.


You are not on the Rutgers residential network. 802.1x configuration cannnot be confirmed from this network.

For a device to work on the residential network, it must be configured for 802.1x using the RUWireless_Secure installer, located here. Any device that has an Ethernet port but cannot support 802.1x (game consoles, routers, Roku 3, Apple TV) will need to be registered through your local Help Desk.

Note that if a device does not have an Ethernet port and does not support enterprise authentication (captive portal or 802.1x), then it is incompatible with the residential network. For a list of confirmed devices with compatibility issues, click here.

Note for Rockoff Residents: Any residents living in Rockoff will not need to configure their devices for 802.1x, and will need to register instead. For more details, see the Getting Connected guide.
