When you register on VISION, you will receive a Novell login granting you access to the ORU network. The wired connection in your room is available as soon as you plug in your computer with an ethernet cord, or a wireless conection can be obtained throughout the University. Each dorm has its own SSID. For example, “ORU Claudius” can be connected to without authentication. For the rest of the campus, the SSID for students is simply “ORU-Student.” In addition, you will be given a Web-based e-mail account on ORU’s e-mail system. Important University information, such as financial aid information, is regularly sent to your ORU e-mail address. As such, it is important for you to regularly check your ORU e-mail. Students are required to use the ORU web-based e-mail; ISP POP3 e-mail is not allowed for security reasons.
