Wired Connections

Wired connections are available to access the Iowa State network.


Iowa State provides a high-speed data network, accessed through duplex jacks that support both Ethernet (data) and voice services. These jacks are located in classrooms, offices, labs, and residence halls.


Residents of Schilletter (SV) and University Village (UV) apartments have internet service provided by Mediacom. For troubleshooting and additional support, visit Mediacom's support site.


Wired connections are available to Iowa State students on campus. Students can order wired connections through AccessPlus. Faculty, staff, and department installations should contact the Solution Center.
