Requests made on the basis of disability are subject to verification and supporting documentation may be requested. Please note that the process for requesting non-standard individual housing is independent of the process that students must use to obtain academic accommodations through the Disabled Students Program, see http://dsp.berkeley.edu/.

All residents are eligible to use the Unit 2 Academic Service Center, featuring multiple PCs and Macintosh Workstations supporting popular software (i.e. Microsoft Office Suite, Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, etc.) and installed with a link to the campus library catalogs, email and the World Wide Web. The Academic Service Center is located in the Central Building. Staff is available to answer questions and troubleshoot problems. You can sign up for a free Academic Service Center Account to use the computers. Color ink jet printing is available for a nominal fee.
All residents are eligible for free wired In-Room Ethernet Connections. In order to connect to the network, your computer will need a network card - also called a Network Interface Card (NIC), an Ethernet card, or an Ethernet adapter. You will also need to bring your own Ethernet cable (often referred to as a category 5 cable) with an RJ45 connector (approximately 25 ft.).
All computers connected to the campus network MUST meet campus minimum security standards which require:
- updated antivirus software
- automatic software patching (e.g. Windows Update)
- a personal firewall
- a strong administrator password
For detailed information about the requirements and how to meet them, please visit ResComp's BeSecure page here.
Residential Computing supports Ethernet connections for computers running Windows XP/Vista and Macintosh OS 10.4 or higher. Windows 95/98/Me and Mac OS 10.3 and below are not allowed on the network as they do not meet campus minimum security standards.
Upon arrival, visit the Unit 2 Computing Center to register for your In-Room Connection. For troubleshooting, contact the helpdesk phone line at (510) 642-HELP (4357) or helpdesk email at email@example.com.
Wireless connections: ResComp provides wireless coverage to registered computers in some lounges and common areas, but not in resident rooms. Please visit the ResComp pages for Unit 2 for the latest hot spots. Students are allowed to bring and set up their own wireless routers in their rooms, but must make sure to secure the routers as the student is responsible for all traffic that passes through their router. ResComp's infosheet on securing wireless routers is available here.
You can also make an appointment with a Residential Computing Consultant for assistance. This can be done through the ResComp home page once you have registered for your In-Room Connection. The ResComp home page is located here.
Residence Hall Peer Advisors support and advise summer session students on course planning, college requirements, majors, and more. Peer Advisors provide drop-in advising in the Academic Services Center, e-mail advising and are available by appointment. The Residence Hall Peer Advising program is an important resource to help students succeed at Cal. Check us out here.
