Internet access is provided to all students in University housing.
We are pleased to announce the
completion of a major expansion of the Yeshiva University wireless
network! Now all Manhattan residence halls have wireless network
will continue to expand wireless coverage in the coming months to
include academic and administrative buildings on the Manhattan campuses,
as well as widely-used common areas between buildings.This wireless
expansion also applies to the Resnick Campus (the new YUWireless and
YUGuest networks are replacing Walnet)
In order to equally support access for
all users of the new YU Wireless systems ITS will be instituting a
wireless connection standard. The standard number of connections to the
YU Wireless per user is one (1). This means that a user can connect to
the YU Wireless with one device at a time. A user may connect either
their computer(laptop/desktop) or another device but not both at the
same time. Other devices include cell phones, PDA, and gaming systems.
Wireless is presently being deployed university wide. For a current
listing of wireless locations and information about expansion, please
review our master deployment schedule.
If you are using a computer without built-in Wireless, a USB Wireless adaptor is required. We recommend:
You can purchase these from many major resellers like Staples or Best Buy.
Note: The above wireless adaptors
are recommended for PC's only. Most consumer Mac computers including,
iMacs, MacBooks, MacBook Pros, and Mac Mini's have built in Wireless
For questions or support, contact the Academic Computing office on your campus.

Internet Filter in Undergraduate Men’s
מחניך קדוש – and
your dwelling places shall be kept holy (D’varim 23:15).
It is with a sense of the prescience of this statement in
the Torah that we introduce an Internet filter program intended to exclude
pornographic images, which have no place in our uptown Yeshiva University
dormitories. The filter is intended for this purpose only, is not an attempt at
censorship of ideas in any way, and will in no way affect Internet service in
any educational or academic space on campus.
It was at the suggestion of a number of students who wished
to confront this matter in a thoughtful way that a committee was formed. It
included a number of Roshei Yeshiva, as well as Dr. David Pelcovitz and
then-Vice President of University Life Dr. Hillel Davis, and featured
discussions with the student leaders at that time of YSU, Student Life and
SOY. Through these discussions, it was
determined that an effective filter was the most elegant and sensible method
with which to protect our dormitory environment from these types of images.
With the endorsement of the University’s leadership and the
assistance of our information technology department, such a filter was
obtained, and will be implemented on an experimental basis, and in a very
carefully calibrated fashion, beginning with the Fall 2012 semester. At
mid-year, we will conduct an internal evaluation of the effectiveness of the
filter and determine its future viability.
In order to ensure that the effect of the filter not be
overbroad, representatives of the Student Life department and my office will be
available to make sure that any possible glitches are identified and remedied
as quickly as possible. Contact them with questions and concerns at email@example.com.
It is our hope that the implementation process will be
smooth and indiscernible. We appreciate your participation, encouragement and
input during this process. Thank you very much.
