ResNet: At the Crossroads of Academe, Residence Life, and Technology

Abstract

This research bulletin analyzes the evolution of network technologies that support residential communities in higher education. It traces the impact of residential network services from the early demand for connectivity to today's broad-spectrum educational services. Infrastructure, governance structures, and the unique role that ResNet service areas play in student life are discussed. Major contributors to this research include The ResNet Organization and six U.S. universities: Indiana University, North Carolina State University, Purdue University, St. Mary's College, University of West Florida, and Washington University in St. Louis.
