Streaming / Media Devices

The Hotel & Dorm Connect feature will allow you to connect to the strose-gameconsole network with the help of your smartphone or other wifi device’s internet browser.


Hotel & Dorm Connect is available only on the following Roku streaming player models: Roku 4, Roku 3, Roku 2, Roku® Streaming Stick®, and Roku TVs. Note: Hotel & Dorm Connect is not supported on Roku 1, Roku SE, or “classic” Roku players released before 2011.

  2. Locate your wireless network “strose-gameconsole” from the list of available networks. After selecting your network, you’ll see two green checks, and one red X next to “…the Internet”.

Chromecast is a consumer device that operates best on home wifi networks that have less privacy and security than our enterprise network environment. These privacy and security settings are required but prevent certain consumer devices from functioning.


Therefore, Chromecast is not supported on the Saint Rose wifi. In some cases you may have success using Chromecast but ITS cannot guarantee it and cannot troubleshoot issues related to the use of Chromecast technology on our network.
