Internet in the Residence Halls

Mizzou provides secure Internet access for students living in the res halls. Connect using either the high-speed Ethernet network or using wifi.

High Speed Internet

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. During the semester, be sure to connect with Ethernet to do your important homework, like when you take a quiz or submit an assignment

Ethernet-Compatible Devices

Be sure to bring entertainment devices that have an Ethernet port or they can use an Ethernet adapter. That is the preferred method for connecting to the network. Adapters are available at TigerTech. The following devices have a wired Ethernet option available:

  • Sony Playstation
  • PS4: has built-in Ethernet (instructions)
  • Microsoft Xbox: has built-in Ethernet
  • Nintendo Wii / Wii U: (adapter information)
  • Nintendo Switch
  • Amazon Fire TV: has built-in Ethernet (instructions)
  • Apple TV: has built-in Ethernet
  • Roku Ultra
  • some Smart TVs
  • some DVD players
  • some BluRay players
Wireless At Mizzou: Tiger WiFi

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. It is intended for academic purposes; therefore, it intentionally uses more stringent security standards than home WiFi to protect your personal and academic information. Bring devices with an Ethernet port because many wireless devices will not connect to TigerWiFi.
