Mizzou TigerNet Wired Network Access
TigerNet is the University's high-speed Ethernet computing network that is connected to the Internet. Service is available in most on-campus offices, classrooms, conference rooms, computing sites, residence halls, and some fraternities and sororities.
TigerNet provides the benefits of standardized delivery of network services.
