Internet service is provided through a connection to the Bridgewater State University Network. A high-speed data line connects the college backbone to the outside world. This service provides a faster connection to the Internet than a modem. It allows access to popular tools like the World Wide Web, FTP, e-mail and more.
Please note that personal routers are not supported or allowed in the residence halls due to interference and security. If you have a connection concern, please contact the ResNet office.
