Each residence hall room has a wired Ethernet port for each student. Using Ethernet is faster and more reliable than wireless, so bring a 25-foot Ethernet cable with you.

TigerWiFi, Mizzou’s wireless network, is available in the residence hall rooms and common areas.
TigerWiFi is not the same as your home WiFi network.

Bring devices with an Ethernet port because many wireless devices will not connect to TigerWiFi.
