Wireless Policy for Webster Groves Resident Students

High speed wireless Internet provided by Webster is available campus wide with the exception of the Webster Village Apartments (WVA). Students are expected to review the University's Information Technology polices. Any student found violating any of the IT policies will be sent through the judicial process.

Maria, East and West Halls

Students in Maria, East and West Halls are prohibited from setting up their own wireless routers or other wireless access points. The possibility of conflict with personal wireless routers or access points and the Webster wireless network will expose the University to considerable security risk and network service disruptions. Discovery of unapproved installations of equipment that conflicts with Webster network services will result in termination of the network connection. In cases of residence hall/students, the offending equipment must be immediately removed from connection to the Webster network. Disciplinary action will result, and sanctions will be determined based on the severity to damage caused, but could include restriction from continued use of the Webster network.

Webster Village Apartments (WVA)

In the WVA, students are allowed to set up their own wireless networks. It is the student's responsibility to make sure these devices are set up properly so that they do not interfere with the Webster network. Setup instructions are available.

If at any time a personal wireless router impedes, interferes with, impairs, or otherwise causes harm to the Webster University networks and systems, IT and Residential Life reserve the right to remove personal wireless routers. Failure to comply with request to terminate the use of a personal wireless router will result in disciplinary action.
