How to access the dorm network

All South Dakota Mines dorms are wired for Internet connections and the connection cost is included in your room cost. All you need is a computer and a network card. All South Dakota Mines-owned laptops are wireless and LAN-ready. 

Please ensure your device's DHCP and DNS settings are set to "automatic".

Not every network port is activated in each dorm room.  Please try other ports in the room to see if they are active.  If you need a port activated please contact Residence Life or ITS.  Go here to request a Port Activation.

Please Note: Your activities are subject to policies concerning the acceptable use of computing and networking services at South Dakota Mines. All DormNet internet connectivity is provided by CenturyLink.
