For your information, to insure adequate Internet access is available for end of semester academic work and finals, Lewis Administration with concurrence of the Student Technology Advisory Committee has made the following decision:
"To provide sufficient Internet accessibility for academic purposes, gaming consoles will not be able to access the Internet during Super Study Weeks and during Final Exam week. Consequently, effective beginning of Super Study Weeks at 8 a.m. until the end of Final Exam week at 10:00 p.m., all Internet connections for gaming consoles will be terminated. However, gaming will be allowed relative to gaming consoles within the residence halls."
Note: PlayStation gaming consoles are not suitable for an enterprise network. As a result, if you are connected to the University's network, PlayStation gaming consoles will only work with other gaming consoles that are also connected to the University's network.
