Information Technology InfoGuide: Residential Internet

Residental Internet

Southwestern University contracts with Apogee to provide internet access for the residence halls. Wireless and wired [ethernet] connection to the Internet is FREE to all students.

Students are required to register with Apogee to receive their unique Apogee login account and password. Click here to register for your Apogee account.

You can connect to the internet in your room from both a wireless and a wired (ethernet) connection. Accessing the internet through a wired connection is often faster and more reliable. All you need is a network or ethernet cable. Every residential room is equipped with one or two wired network [data] wall-jacks. Simply plug in the network cable from your computer into the jack and you will be ready to go!

The APOGEE wireless network covers the entire campus.  Once you are logged into the APOGEE wireless network in your Resident Hall, you will be able to stay connected anywhere on campus using your APOGEE wireless connection.
