A person using a personally-owned device using UNI's data network in residence halls or apartments.

Unfortunately, Roku players do not support WPA Enterprise, which is the wireless network type we use. Therefore, they are unable to connect wirelessly. However, if your Roku has an Ethernet port, then you are able to connect via an Ethernet cable to the data port located in your residence hall room. You will need to locate the MAC address of your Roku and register it with our network before you are able to receive access.

Step One

Ensure that you have a compatible Roku player with an Ethernet port. The Roku 3 is the most recent Roku that offers this feature. 

AppleTV can connect both wirelessly and via Ethernet cable to the data port in your residence hall room.

To change your name on the network:
