Residential Internet (PARROT)

Southwestern University contracts with ResNet to provide internet access for the residence halls. Wireless and wired (ethernet) connection to the Internet is FREE to all students.

Students are required to register with ResNet to receive their unique ResNet login account and password. Click here to register for your ResNet account.

You can connect to the internet in your room from both a wireless and a wired (ethernet) connection. Accessing the internet through a wired connection is often faster and more reliable. All you need is a network or ethernet cable. Every residential room is equipped with one or two wired network (data) wall-jacks. Simply plug in the network cable from your computer into the jack and you will be ready to go!

The PARROT wireless network covers the entire campus.  Once you are logged into the PARROT wireless network in your Resident Hall, you will be able to stay connected anywhere on campus using your PARROT wireless connection.  

Need help or have a broken network jack in your room?

ResNet technicians are on call 24/7. Call (512) 819-7333 to report a problem with internet service in your residence.
