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 berry ResNet SWAT shirts in New Brunswick and the grey OIT polos in Newark) while the teams are present in your residence hall.
