The Residence Network at U of T Scarborough is a service provided to U of T Scarborough students living on campus with a goal of supporting students' academic activities. U of T Scarborough supports the same Wi-Fi networks (UofT and eduroam) available across the university.
IITS provides network connectivity and limited technical support to student residents on campus. The Residence Network is not a commercial service.
Access to the Internet is provided through the University of Toronto's backbone network, and as such, requires compliance with the appropriate University IT policies.
ResNet Service Management
To provide a fair equitable Residence network access for all students, a management system is implemented on the ResNet wireless and cabled networks. If misuse of the service takes place, your device will be placed on a remediation network. While on the remediation network, users will have limited network access and should schedule a visit with Student HelpDesk.
