ResNET Electronic Citizenship

ResNET is provided to students in the residence halls to support their academic work at Rensselaer. However, since network capacity is shared by all and is a limited resource, there are some restrictions on how you may use ResNET.

  • Your activities may not make excessive demands on network resources. If your activities have an inappropriate impact on others using the network, you may be asked to modify your activities significantly, or you may have your computer removed from the network altogether.
  • You may operate a web server, if you so desire.
  • All ResNET use must comply with the campus policy on electronic citizenship.

We have provided a summary of the Policy on Electronic Citizenship here for your reference.  The text also appears in the Rensselaer Student Handbook.
