How do we connect two or more computers to the internet in our dorm room?

If you reside in Hutton Hall or Kleist Hall, your dorm room is equipped with multiple network jacks. However, in the event that two or more residents are assigned to a dorm room with only one network port, a hub may be leased from the office of Information Technology at no charge.All residents of the dorm room must come by the Information Technology office and fill out the appropriate paperwork before a hub will be issued.The lease is valid for the duration of the current academic year. The hub and included accessories must be returned to the office of Information Technology by the last day of classes for the Spring semester of the given academic year.If the hub and its accessories are not returned by this deadline, each member of the dorm room will be charged a fee of $25.00 to cover the damages.

    • If this feature was not standard on your computer, it can be purchased from the campus bookstore or a local retailer.
