New Wireless Network: AirPennNet-Device

The need to connect various devices to the internet has become increasingly more important for people in order to enjoy all of the functionality these devices offer.  From playing games online with people around the world on an Xbox, to streaming Netflix movies on a Roku, to downloading the latest bestseller on your Kindle, being able to connect our devices to the internet is now essential for many of us.

To meet this need at the University, Information Systems & Computing launched a new wireless network called AirPennNet-Device on August 19, 2013.  The new network is available throughout the University's residential system with the exception of Greek houses.  AirPennNet-Device is designed for devices that cannot to connect to regular AirPennNet such as Kindles, Nooks, Xbox 360s, Playstation 3s, Rokus, and more.  For more information on what can and cannot connect to AirPennNet-Device, please see the Connectivity Options in Penn's Residences article.

Devices must be registered before they can be connected to AirPennNet-Device.  Residents of Sansom Place East and Sansom Place West should bring their devices to the Computing Resource Center (CRC) in suite 202 Sansom Place West.  Students in other residences should contact their ITAs for assistance.
