Serving as ResNet´s on-site rapid response units, SWAT teams will be available in first year student residence halls to facilitate a quick, efficient connection to the residence hall computer network. Most students will not experience difficulty with this process. However, should you experience problems, we strongly recommend that you speak with a SWAT representative (look for the Military Green ResNet SWAT shirts on the New Brunswick Campus and the Yellow shirts on the Newark Campus) while the teams are present in your residence hall.

The Computing Help Desk can also assist with this matter, but due to the large influx of students, expected phone wait times will be significantly longer for the first several weeks of the semester.  We will also walk to nearby residence halls to assist you in getting connected.  Please come to the nearest location to find a SWAT team member.

Please bring ethernet cables to connect to the wired connection in your residence hall room and USB cables to connect to your printers.  Wireless is available in all of the residence halls.  Please visit kite+key, the Rutgers Tech Store if you require any accessories.
