The Stanford University Network (SUNet) consists of local networks within buildings and a backbone network that connects the local networks to each other and to networks off campus.
The backbone is designed and operated by University IT. Network services within individual buildings are the responsibility of the departments that occupy those buildings, unless support is purchased from University IT.
For academic and administrative buildings, we provide and support the data communication infrastructure to the facility entrance. Through the Net-to-Switch program, we provide data communication infrastructure within the academic and administrative buildings. For student residences, we support the data communication infrastructure to the service outlets in student rooms. Off-campus connectivity is maintained through multiple internet connections as well as Internet2.
For student residences, University IT supports the data communication infrastructure to the telecommunications service outlet (i.e., the wall jack) in student rooms. The Student Technology group within the VPSA Learning Technologies & Spaces department supports students in their use of network services in student housing facilities. When necessary, Student Technology consults and enlists support from University IT.
