We know you expect access to excellent computing facilities when you are working on your degree. And UNL delivers. Every student room in the regular residence halls has direct access to the Internet.
We provide 100Mb Ethernet connections. We recommend using the available Ethernet Ports for desktop computers, gameboxes and TVs/video streaming devices. Wireless access is available in every residence hall. Family Housing units (University Park, Vine St. and U St. Apartments, do not.) We recommend using the wireless for laptops, phones and any other mobile devices.
By connecting your computer in your room, you can surf the web. That's right, unlimited access to the World Wide Web. Search the library database to see if a book is available right from your room. Pursue research across the world to help with your papers. Retrieve and submit homework to your professors.
Ethernet cables are not provided. Students need to bring a 25 ft. Ethernet cable should they want to have internet access in their rooms. A phone cable will not work.
If you don't have your own computer, there are labs available 24 hours a day / 7 days a week. There is at least one lab in each complex. You can just go downstairs and hop right on a computer.

There is NO additional charge for these services. No monthly or hook up fees, nothing. Compare this to Broadband services such as Cable and DSL, which can easily run you $45 every month for the same performance.
There are two things you need to know. First, you pay for laser copies you print. You can access your uniprint account at: https://uniprint.unl.edu/. You can add money to your uniprint account from your n-card online.If you have any questions, please check the ResNet web site, http://resnet.unl.edu/.
The Internet connections in the UNL residence halls are a cut above the rest - even when compared to Cable and DSL, the performance is great. Every room in the regular residence halls has two 10Mb Ethernet ports. What does that mean for you? Convenience and ease of use.Ethernet
