The University of Minnesota provides great networking within all buildings on the Twin Cities Campus and to the system campuses. The University also connects to both the global Internet and a number of special research and education networks commonly referred to as Internet2. These networks provide high-bandwidth connectivity enabling and supporting research collaborations and educational opportunities regionally, nationally, and around the world.

For most users connecting to the campus wired network is as simple as plugging an ethernet cable into their computer's network card and launching a web browser.
