WIFI & Internet Connectivity


All suites in Carlyle are equipped with Ethernet ports.  These can be used for high-speed internet access via NYU ResNet.  Residents wishing to use the Ethernet ports must activate their devices through the ResNet Registration protocol.  

To connect, residents should supply their own 7-pin Ethernet Cable, locate the jack depicted, and connect to the "DATA" port.  



Carlyle's suites and common spaces have access to NYU WIFI.  Residents with an active NYU NetID and password may log on to the same "nyu" network available at other campus locations.
