HuskyNet Wired Access

SCSU has several hundred wired access plug-ins, also called open data jacks, which provide campus laptop users with the ability to plug in and use SCSU network resources and the Internet. These open data jacks provide wired access to:

  • Internet
  • SCSU library resources

Several hundred wired access plug-ins are found in the Miller Center (library). Each study table is outfitted with a data jack and a power receptacle. A couple of open data jacks are also available in the coffee shop. The Engineering and Computing Center Lab, ECC 103, also offers wired access.

Wired access plug-ins also can be found in many other campus locations. Please contact the HelpDesk for assistance.
