ResNet is short for Residential Network. This is how computers, gaming consoles and other devices can get access to the in-room wired internet connection managed by MIO since 1996.

Computer Requirements

All computers connecting to ResNet must have a self-updating antivirus program. 


Minimum Windows Requirements

The minimum supported operating system is Windows 8.  We also provide support for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10.  Any operating systems older than Windows 8 are neither supported nor recommended for use.  These devices may be able to register, however, if problems occur, MIO will not be able to provide support.

Minimum OSX Requirements

The minimum supported OSX operating system is 10.13 (High Sierra).  Again, while older versions may be able to connect, they will not be supported should problems arise.


It is possible to connect other operating systems, such as GNU/Linux, however no support from MIO will be provided.

It is also possible to connect gaming consoles to the network, however support for them is also limited. We cannot guarantee that all games or services will work.  Make sure to check to see if the content works before paying for a subscription. 


Connect your device to the white switch provided to you on move in day. (Note: Make sure that it is plugged in to the power and than an ethernet cable is plugged into the ethernet jack in your room)



Connecting two or more devices to ResNet

With the exception of Taylor Hall (three data jacks), there is only one data jack per room. Each room is provided with a data switch, which will allow for both roommates to connect to ResNet. Routers are prohibited in the resident halls, including wireless routers even if only used as a switch. To read our policies about switches look at our Policies page
