Internet Restrictions

Currently there are no restrictions--UConn students/faculty/staff with a NetID may freely use our workstations to access the Internet. Guests without a NetID can use one of the guest workstations on Plaza Level or on Levels A, B, 2, 3, & 4.


UConn students, faculty and staff may log in to the Library's network using their NetID's. Guests must first register at the "kiosk" (computer) located on the Plaza (entry) level next to the iDesk (ask iDesk staff for assistance)

Wireless access to the Internet is generally available throughout the Library!
