Apogee Launches New 'myResNet' Student Portal

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - March 15, 2011) - Apogee, the nation's largest provider of managed residential network (ResNet) services to higher education, today announced the public launch of its new myResNet Student Portal -- a website dedicated to making the ResNet registration and support process easier, faster and more enjoyable for student customers.

The new site, created by Apogee's in-house digital team, embodies Apogee's forward-thinking vision and commitment to the growing needs of student residents at campuses across the nation. The look of the site incorporates bold colors, texture and dimension, while offering completely new navigational tools designed to clearly direct student customers to whichever site function serves them best at any given time.

Among the resources available on Apogee's new myResNet account management site, students will find many new enhanced and expanded features, including:

  • Quick and easy steps to register a new account
  • The ability to quickly renew or upgrade an existing account
  • Direct access to information about their individual network service
  • Tools to recover lost usernames and passwords
  • Links to free spyware and virus prevention software
  • Online support material, frequently asked questions, and cable TV channel guides
  • Instant access to Apogee's 24/7/365 student support

Connecting network-capable devices to the network is now easier than ever, with a new online device registration system capable of connecting gaming consoles, smartphones, and other mobile devices directly from the residence hall in just a matter of minutes.

"This new design was created specifically for our unique base of student customers and the many ways they now connect to the network," said Nat Nealeigh, Apogee's Director of Marketing and Communications. "We wanted to make sure that every process was visible and painless, while developing a new student-focused brand that would reflect the dynamic nature of Apogee and its services."
