On-Campus Residents - Before You Move In

Welcome, or welcome back, to UW-River Falls.  If you are a student who lives in one of our residence halls, there are some things you will want to know prior to your arrival on campus.

Duo Multi-Factor Authentication

In order to protect your account from becoming compromised, all students are required to use Duo multi-factor authentication. Duo is a way to use your phone as a key to your account. Not only would a thief require your username and password but they would also require your smart device. The technology works the same way Google, Facebook, the banking industry, and most other enterprise services.

By the time you're moving in you'll have Duo configured. To learn more about and enroll in Duo for UWRF see Duo Multi-Factor Authentication 

Office 365

As a UWRF student, you are licensed to use the Office 365 suite. With the licensing of Office 365, you can download and install the desktop applications associated with Microsoft's Office 365 suite to your computer and up to 5 devices total.

See Microsoft Office 365: Installing on your personal computer

Connecting to Our Wireless Network

Connect to the eduroam wireless network by using your Falcon Account e-mail and password for any personal computers (tablets, phones, and computers). All other devices (gaming consoles, streaming devices, etc.) should be connected to UWRF-Registered. We don't support wired network connections in the residence halls. For more detailed information and ways to connect your devices, see our Residence Hall Students - Connecting Your Devices to the Wireless Network knowledge base article.

Printing in the Res Halls

We provide all of the necessary resources for you to print any type of document you might need. You can go to this knowledge base article to learn more: Printing on Campus

Illegal Sharing of Copyrighted Material

You will want to make sure you aren't bringing devices to campus which may be configured to illegally obtain and share copyrighted material.
