Answer

NETWORK/WIRELESS ACCESS
Trine University has wireless available in all academic and administrative buildings, student villas, and in common areas in the apartments and units.  If students wish to connect a computer to the network there are a number of ways to complete this.  Each student will be given an ethernet cable in their bedroom to connect to their personal computers.  The first time students attempt to use the university network please use the ethernet cable provided.  Wireless coverage is NOT available in the student’s bedroom; wireless is available in common areas. 

Students will be required to use up-to-date anti-virus software in order to access the university network and the Internet.  University recommended anti-virus software includes Symantec/Norton, McAfee, Sophos or Microsoft Security Essentials (FREE) – see listing below of all accepted anti-virus applications.
