ResNet connects student residences at UBC to the campus network and the internet. It provides high-speed access to the internet at speeds several hundred times faster than phone modems.

ResNet is a service of UBC's Student Housing and Hospitality Services, Green College, St. John's College, Vancouver School of Theology, St. Andrews College, Carey College and UBC IT.



All students who live in a residence supported by ResNet can use the service. Supported residences are:

  • Carey College
  • Fairview Crescent Residence
  • Green College
  • Iona Residence
  • Marine Drive Residence
  • MBA House
  • Orchard Commons
  • Place Vanier
  • Ponderosa Commons
  • Ritsumeikan-UBC House
  • St. Andrew's College
  • St. John's College
  • Thunderbird Residence
  • Totem Park
  • VST (Vancouver School of Theology):
    • ResNet available at the Somerville House Residence and the Iona Building (However, the Iona Hotel exists within the building on the 3rd and 4th floors, and has its own internet connection)
  • Walter H. Gage Residences
  • Other Residences and Colleges
    • Although residential network connectivity may be available at other theological colleges, these are not considered part of ResNet. Support for these networks is handled through their respective network coordinators.


ResNet is included in your room fees - there is no extra charge to get connected.
