encryption methods on it and is designed to allow guests access to
the internet but only limited access to Rose-Hulman's internal
network. In order to connect to this network a username and
password are required. Network passwords will not work for this
network. Only faculty and staff members may request the creation of
a username for a guest of the institute.
Wireless routers in residence halls
Rose-Hulman provide wireless access to all of the
residence halls on campus, in addition to all academic
buildings, so it is not necessary for students to bring a personal
wireless router to campus. If a student choses to bring a
wireless router, IAIT requires the wireless functionality be
disabled to prevent interference with the campus-wide wireless
network. If you have questions about this policy, contact us.
