Student Residential Network (MyResNet)

The student residential network (MyResNet) does not restrict the type of devices you can connect at Furman.  Through a partnership with MyResNet you may now connect wireless printers, sonos systems, echo systems and many more while in your residence.

MyResNet provides 24-hour support to assist you in connecting to the residential network and can be reached at (833) 493-4891 or support@myresnet.com

The FU-Students wifi network is available in all other buildings except the residence halls. (e.g., academic buildings, library, dining hall) and does require the use of the Furman anti-virus software (Trend Micro) and network access control agent (FortiNAC).

The network access control (NAC) agent will register devices, check for security updates, and direct you to the required anti-virus software.

You may download the software when you are redirected from the NAC agent or you may bring your computer and power cable to the New Student Computer Setup event during orientation (hours listed below).

Anti-virus software is not required for tablets and smartphones, but you must register these devices if you want to use them on the FU-Students network.

If you have any problems or questions please contact the IT Service Center.
