Housing Technology Services Matrix and Terms of Use

All use of the BYU network must comply with the "BYU Wired and Wireless Network Terms of Use".  See


Housing Wireless Network Connection

Link to Housing Wireless Network Connection

Access to the BYU Network and Internet is provided in select residences (* See Matrix below) through a wireless network connection. The BYU network uses an 802.11 a/g/n protocol. Note: 802.11b is NOT supported. This means that devices which rely on the B protocol, such as older model game consoles and some wireless printers, will not work.

Access to the BYU network and Internet is provided through a wired Ethernet network connection in select residences (* See Matrix below).  

Residents in these locations may install their own personal wireless access points; however, OIT does not offer assistance in configuring or provide support for your personal wireless access points. OIT does recommend that those personal wireless access points support 802.11n (5 GHz) as this is the preferred protocol.


IPTV Television Connection

Each select residence (* See Matrix below) also includes an IPTV connection. IPTV may be viewed on a computer at no cost or on a television with the use of a BYU set top box which may be rented from OIT. IPTV is not available over a university provided wireless network connection.
