ResNet Fee Frequently Asked Questions
What services does a ResNet subscription provide?
Subscribing to ResNet provides fully functional access to high speed network ports in rooms and throughout the residences, and access to password protected resources from within the residences. Password protected resources include campus e-mail, courseware, Student Link functions such as online class registration, and other personal communication and information services.

How much does it cost to subscribe to ResNet?
The price per subscriber for access to ResNet is only $332 per year. Note that consumers commonly pay several hundred dollars a year to subscribe to services providing less than a tenth the capacity ResNet offers each resident at Boston University.

What if I waive the fee?
Waiving the fee cancels and disables your subscription to ResNet. Once on campus, you can subscribe to ResNet immediately at any time from any computer connected to the network.
Residents who choose to subscribe to ResNet while on campus rather than in advance will be offered the opportunity to be guided through the subscription process whenever they attempt to register a personal computer on ResNet or to gain access to password protected services from ResNet. These services include campus e-mail, courseware, Student Link functions such as online registration, and other personal communication and information services. Specialized Web pages offer quick and convenient access to the subscription process.

Can I share a friend's or roommate's ResNet subscription instead of establishing my own?

Will guests be able to use ResNet?
Guests may use ResNet without a subscription for occasional and responsible access to the Internet. Guests who are not Boston University students who wish to connect their own PCs to ResNet may be sponsored by a resident who subscribes to ResNet. However, sponsors will be held accountable for their guests' use of ResNet
