At Dickinson, every student room on campus, and most off-campus College-owned housing, has access to ResNet, the student Residential Network. From ResNet, students can access the web, send and receive e-mail, create their own web pages, share files with other students, and access campus resources. Additionally, the RSA provides support for a variety of computer related issues associated with internet connectivity problems, operating system issues, and malware removal. The staff is also available to lend advice dealing with other computer related issues but will not install hardware, software, or repair errors beyond those pertaining to network connectivity, malware removal, and operating system issues.

You must bring your computer with you for service. If you have a desktop computer, you need only bring the CPU, not the monitor, keyboard or mouse. If you have a laptop computer, please bring the power cord - we'll need it!

The RSA is located at the back of the HUB Microroom (HUB Lower Level). The RSA opens in the Fall during the first week of classes, and is open during the Fall and Spring semesters whenever classes are in session.

If you have further questions, please contact the RSA: edu or 717.254.8108.

Network Storage (The Y: Drive)

All students have both private and shared storage (1GB) on the campus network that is secure and backed up every day. When connected to Dickinson's network on your personal computer (wired or wireless), you can access your network storage space provided by the College by following these walk throughs. When you're not on campus, you still have access to the Y: drive through NetFiles in Gateway.
