In-Room Ethernet Connections

  • Suites

    Suites Wall JackIf you live in one of the Suite buildings, any port that ends with an “A” (for example, 123-AA, 124A-BA, 125D-AA, etc.) will be activated for wired ethernet. Plug your network cable into the closest port and the other end into the computer or device itself. Some suites may also have ports active in common areas, such as kitchens and living rooms. Active ports in a shared room will be on opposite sides of the room.
