Computer Network & Telephones

All residence halls feature wireless and wired network connections which enable access to the internet and other web-based services offered by the college.  Wired access leverages a dedicated, high-speed 1 GB connection while wireless service is a shared connection.  Wireless speeds and coverage  may vary from place to place and is dependent on multiple factors including building construction, type and capability of client device,  and the number of devices connected to a given access point.  The College makes its best effort to cover as much area with wireless as possible, but cannot guarantee maximum performance in all locations on campus. Individuals with wireless performance issues are encouraged to contact the help desk to report the problem, but may also want to consider using the wired network for higher-performance applications like gaming and video streaming.

Students who live in a residence hall may obtain a telephone by contacting the Lafayette Help Desk and submitting a request. The student will be responsible for returning the telephone to ITS at the end of the school year.
