Wired Network Connectivity

One wired network connection is provided for each student occupant in Bellarmine, Campion, Chardin, and Xavier Halls. Rooms in Murphy Apartments may have one or more wired network connections depending on the room layout.  Each wired network connection provides access to the internal Seattle University network as well as the Internet.

Accessing the Network

Click here for instructions on locating your network jack in a Residence Hall room.

If your computer uses the Windows operating system you are required to install the Cisco Clean Access (CCA) software.  Windows computers will have no network connectivity until CCA is installed.  The installation should begin automatically once you open a web browser and try to access the Internet.  Otherwise click here for more information about CCA including how to install it.
