Campus WiFi

Evangel now provides WiFi in the residence halls. Personal WiFi routers are no longer necessary, in fact, their use is now prohibited as non-Evangel WiFi systems will interfere and degrade the experience of all wireless users. Students do not have to bring any special equipment to connect to Evangel's internet network. 

Residence Hall Rooms

In addition to WiFi connectivity, each room is equipped with 2 network ports and 1 phone jack. The top network port is for your gaming console, while the other network port is for general Internet. Phone service is available only by request; just submit a ticket to Physical Plant here. Phones are not provided.
