Network Connections

UNLV Housing and Residential Life network connections are provided for client use only. Servers are not permitted. Servers include any device that offers services over the network or that allows incoming network connections. UNLV Housing and Residential Life network connections are a shared resource. Residents shall limit the network traffic to and from their computer to an amount that allows others reasonable use of the network. For example, a user should refrain from long-term, continuous downloading of media files, applications, or other large files. Residents shall keep a working anti-virus program installed, keep their anti-virus definitions current, and keep the critical system updates current. UNLV reserves air rights on campus for the 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz wireless frequencies; written permission from the ResNet office must be obtained before installing such a device in the residence halls. Wireless devices may not be connected to ResNet without written permission from the ResNet office.
