ResNet stands for Residential Networking and is part of the campus-side ITS organization. ResNet's main goal is to provide support to RIT students both personal computers and RIT network connectivity. We also operate a repair center where members of RIT can submit their device for repairs.
ITS ResNet provides technical support for machines personally owned by RIT students. ResNet offers a wide range of services from basic machine tune-up and virus scans to file recovery and hardware replacement. Our friendly Residential Computing Consultants are on hand to assist RIT students in troubleshooting and resolving a wide variety of computer issues.
Our full-service computer maintenance, upgrade, and repair facility provides a quick and convenient option for computer repair right on the RIT campus. Throughout the repair process, our customers remain informed of their computer's status at each step. In addition, our knowledgeable staff is equipped to provide useful information regarding component replacements and upgrades should they be request or be necessary for repairs.
The ITS ResNet office works to ensure that RIT students continue to receive prompt and courteous service. Our location at Nathaniel Rochester Hall is equipped with plenty of workspace and parking to allow Resnet to easily serve residential students, commuters, faculty, and staff.
