SIU Residence Halls


Each residence hall room is set up to provide wireless internet access to "RezNet", which is the residence hall data network. Students connect to RezNet through "eduroam" to use laptops, tablets and mobile devices. The "eduroam" network is available in all buildings on campus. The "SIU-limited" network is available for game stations, media streaming devices and network TVs.
