RUWireless provides the Rutgers University community with wireless network access in many areas of all three Rutgers University campuses. All Rutgers University students, staff, and faculty, as well as sponsored guests, are able to use the RUWireless system in the many community spaces, dorms, and departmental buildings where it is available. Separate registration is not required, only a valid NetID and password are needed for access.
Network & Wireless
The Office of Information Technology, in providing better service to the University community, secures some of its services so they can only be used by computers on the Rutgers Network. That means those services will not be directly available through Internet Service Providers (ISPs) from off-campus, but instead must be accessed through the Rutgers Virtual Private Network (VPN). In addition to configuring VPN client software, VPN users will need to use their Rutgers NetID (username) and passwords.
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.
OITTechnical Support Services offers fee based firewall installation and support services to Rutgers departments.
