Family Housing Ethernet Connections

Each Family Housing apartment has Long Range Ethernet. This high-speed internet access connects over the telephone lines at speeds comparable to commercial cable and DSL services.

The University has provided each apartment with a Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) unit and a CPE adapter, which cannot be used with any networks other than the University of Massachusetts Amherst. All users are financially responsible for the unit while it is in their possession. An information packet for connecting to the CPE unit is available at the Family Housing office in Wysocki House.
