Network Access

Network Access Overview

A variety of network options are available to Hood College students, faculty, and staff. Eligible users have access to Hood's network infrastructure through wired and wireless connections. The option you choose at any particular time depends on your location (i.e. an office, a classroom, a dorm, the cafeteria, your home, etc.) and the type of networking resource(s) you have available (i.e. a laptop, PDA, desktop computer, etc.)
