OIT provides a campuswide printing service called Follow-Me-Print. This ensures printing is confidential to the user and reduces printed waste from documents left uncollected at the printer. Each multifunction printer is linked to a network print server, enabling students to print, copy or scan from a multitude of locations across campus.
Wireless and wired internet services are available in all of the resident hall rooms. For security purposes, connect your devices to one of our secure networks using your HPU credentials (HPU-5GHZ or HPU-WIFI). For gaming systems and Smart TVs connect to HPU-Gaming. We suggest connecting your gaming devices via ethernet for the best performance.
