Your Residence Hall Room
In your room, Residential Education and Housing provides; a bed, mattress, desk, dresser, desk chair, phone, internet access and cable TV access.
The following are some suggestions on how to make your residence hall room feel more like home:
All beds are extra-long twin. If you plan on purchasing jersey (type of fabric) sheets, you do not need to get extra-long.
Each residence hall is equipped with digital/HD cable TV service. The cost of the this service is included in the semester housing charges. Information technology services provides the service. Students need to provide their own TV. For more information please visit the Information Technology Services (ITS) website or contact them directly at 920-403-4040.
Wireless access is available in all campus residence halls for laptops. Wired networking is also available in all residence halls and rooms and requires a CAT5 or CAT6 Ethernet/network cable to connect to the network jack. In general, a cable of 15 to 30 feet is recommended for a student room. To get internet access, students must register their computers on the network, which is done once the computer is brought to campus (opening any web browser prompts registration so have login ID and password on hand). Specific requirements vary by operating system. For details, see Information Technology Services’ bringing a computer to campus instructions.
