Service Levels


Port-activation requests are generally completed within one business day. While no specific service-level agreement exists for the wired network, ITS will work to quickly address any performance issues.


Wireless access in outdoor spaces is very limited.


  • Wired-networking services are available throughout the Mines campus, in all academic buildings, administrative buildings, residence halls, and apartments. Available speeds range from 100 Mbps to 10 Gbps, depending on service location. ITS provides network-configuration assistance and troubleshooting of existing network connections. Custom networks can also be designed for clients needing moderate to high levels of network isolation, security, or performance.
  • Wireless networking is available in all academic and administrative buildings, residence halls and apartments. All buildings support 802.11ac wireless networking on both 2.4Ghz and 5.2Ghz bands. There are 3 wireless networks available for general use:

  • CSMwireless – Unencrypted wireless networking for faculty, staff, and students

  • eduroam – Encrypted wireless networking for Mines faculty, staff and students as well as guest access for affiliates of institutions who are members of eduroam.

Generally free. Installation of new data cables does have an associated charge. Creation of custom data networks may also incur an additional charge.
