Student Data Network Service - Overview

This article describes the data services available to students in University residence halls.

Basic Room Data Service and Repair

In addition to phone service, each room or apartment has computer network Ethernet jacks for access to the campus data network. Basic room data service is offered by IT Services, which provides computing support for the University at large. There are no online or user charges for the services provided.

Ethernet cables can be found at the front desk of the Residence Halls. If you have any questions about data service, contact the IT Services Service Desk.

Required network repairs will be completed in a timely manner whenever possible. However, certain repairs must be scheduled with you or an appointed representative present, since they require access to your room. Repairs should be requested by calling 4-6000.

Students who use the network in violation of the University of Chicago Eligibility and Acceptable Use Policy for Information Technology are subject to administrative action, including removal from the network. See for further information.

Data Services Available

All new college students may claim their Chicago Network IDs (CNetIDs) and CNet passwords over the summer before arriving on campus.
