Accessing the Internet
Residents with computers must have an Emory-issued username and password to access the Emory Network. Residents will receive a special username and password at check-in. Instructions on accessing the network will be given with the username. Computers may need to be scanned or inspected before being allowed on the network. Emory no longer offers Ethernet connection.

*Emory Library and Information Technology Services (LITS) offers wireless internet support to summer interns with computers running Windows Vista, 7, and 8 and Mac OS 10.6 and higher. If you have a computer running Windows XP or Mac OS 10.5 or lower, Emory has limited resources to assist you and you may have difficulty connecting to the wireless network. OIS is retiring their support for those systems summer 2013. We strongly encourage interns to bring machines running at least Windows Vista or Mac OS 10.6.


SIHP staff will be present at your check-in to assist you with any questions you may have. Housing staff is not allowed to carry any personal belongings, but hand trucks are available for your use to move your items into and out of your apartment. Hand trucks may be checked out from the Student Activity and Academic Center with photo identification.
