Both, the school and residence have wifi services.  Students will receive the password and ID once they move in.  If the student is staying at Cabrini for the Summer Intensive, there is wifi for guests.  It is recommended that students' phone have their own access to internet in case they need it and they are out of range, but students can switch to free wifi whenever it's available so they don't have to use all of their data (if it's limited).
