Each student is assigned an in-room data line. If you plan to bring your own computer and access the ENC network you will need a network cable. The cable could be bought in our campus store when you arrive on campus or can be purchased at your local computer supplies vendor. Wireless connection is available in most areas on campus.
If you plan to connect to the ENC network, you will need to follow the instructions provided by Information Technology Services to install anti-virus software on your system. Information Technology Services is available to assist as needed.
