Pioneer Heights Internet Information

As part of a Campus-Wide program, Pioneer Heights is going port less. Ethernet ports that are inside the apartment are no longer active and cannot be used to access the internet, read the following article "CSUEB leaves internet ports behind" for more information. The Internet can only be accessed via wireless in Student Housing Apartments. Campus IT has made significant improvements to the Pioneer Heights wireless network and all connections will be wireless. If you plan to bring a Desktop to campus, it is suggested that you purchase a USB Wireless Network Adapter to receive Internet service.

Getting Your Gaming Consoles and Multimedia Equipment Connected

CSU East Bay is now providing a mechanism to connect some gaming consoles and Internet TV devices to the wireless network in the residence halls through a self-service registration process. Each resident can have up to three entertainment devices connected to "TheHts" network at a time. Device registrations are automatically deleted between Summer and Fall of each year. This service is offered as a convenience to residential students; the Information Technology Services (ITS) Service Desk does not provide support for gaming consoles and Internet TV devices.

For Roku SmartTV, do the following after registering your device:

From the Roku Home screen, select Settings > Network > Set up new wireless connection > TheHts > "I am at home"
WARNING – DO NOT SELECT "I am at a hotel or college dorm"
