Welcome UCSD Conference Guests

What is ResNet?

Residential Networking (ResNet) provides network and computer support for students living in residence halls and on-campus apartments. It is our goal to assist, educate, and support our customers in any way we can. We don't just fix problems–we help people. Support is provided at no extra charge, as the costs are included in the housing fees.

We help with

  • Internet connectivity issues
  • Malware
  • Dead hard drives
  • Malfunctioning computers
  • Cable TV
  • and more!
