Residential areas of campus now offer "wireless" access to student and staff computers. However, personal wireless routers are not allowed to be used with student or staff computers that are "plug" connected to the campus network.
There are also 15 computer labs with over 300 computers available for student use throughout the campus. Dedicated computer labs are available 24-hours-a-day. These are locate in Lyon Hall (residents of the Honors Program only), as well as in Terrace 03, East Tower, and West Tower. Check the Information Technology Services site for lab locations and hours.
A telephone and cable TV jack is in each student room (the coaxial cable needed to connect a television to the jack is not supplied by the college). Suites and some apartments may have additional jacks. Opt-in local phone service is available by contacting the Computer Help Desk. Individual cable service is available from Time Warner of Ithaca (students are responsible to arrange, change or cancel service).
