2014 Third Annual ACUTA/NACUBO/ACUHO-I State of ResNet Report

ResNet Trends & Practices Across Higher Education

(Participate in Next Year's Survey)
ACUTA is pleased to announce the publication of its third annual State of ResNet Report that represents a continued partnership with NACUBO and a new partnership with ACUHO-I. The 2014 report is a comprehensive survey designed to measure the broad variation in practice and policy within higher education and lay the groundwork for long-term trend analysis and benchmarking. For the third year, the study targets all higher-education institutions in the United States with on-campus residential housing, focusing on IT and business issues affecting the residential student network.

In support of its mission, ACUTA again contracted with Forward Analytics, a nationally-recognized market research firm, to design and conduct this study during November and December 2013. The ACUTA/NACUBO/ACUHO-I ResNet study was conducted online and targeted higher-education IT leaders or persons responsible for ResNet finance and infrastructure. A total of 509 surveys were completed, representing 412 universities or colleges (some institutions had multiple respondents) within a sample population of 1,700 U.S. higher-education institutions determined to have provided on-campus housing for students.

Many thanks to ACUTA, NACUBO and ACUHO-I members who took the time to respond to this survey, allowing us to present an up-to-the-minute picture of residential networks.
