ResNet (Residence Halls Network) provides Northeastern’s residence halls with redundant, high-bandwidth, high-availability wired connectivity from Northeastern’s data network to the internet and the university’s internal electronic resources.

Get Started

  • When you first set up in your residence hall and connect your laptop or desktop via Ethernet cable, you will need to register your computer on ResNet. You will need to renew that registration at the start of each academic year; at the end of Summer II, there is a flush of all MAC addresses so re-registration is needed.
  • To access applications, resources and services, you must sign on with your myNortheastern login and password.
  • If you are already signed on via the NUwave wireless network and want to move to the faster ResNet wired network, you do not need to log in again.


For questions about connecting to ResNet, or problem troubleshooting, contact the IT Service Desk at 617.373.4357 (xHELP), email or initiate a chat session.
