Connecting to ResNet

What's the network like?
Heidelberg University provides network connectivity to students via our Residence Hall Network ("ResNet"). In the residence halls, each student is provided with one "network faceplate" to which he or she can connect a computer to the campus network. A ResNet connection includes full Internet connectivity, as well as access to Heidelberg's own network resources (email, storage space, OASIS academic record information, etc.). Our campus network is built on a 1 Gbps ("gigabit per second") Ethernet backbone with 100 Mbps ("megabits per second") switched connectivity to each network faceplate.

See our Computer Recommendations for our suggestions on a suitable computer configuration.

The University has implemented a network authentication and validation security system known as "Safe Connect," to help prevent infected computers from accessing the network and infecting other computers. Students: when you connected in your residence hall room, you'll need to go through the registration process. If your machine is patched and up-to-date, the process will go very quickly; if vulnerabilities are found, you will be lead through some simple remediation processes.
