Q

So now that people will be living in dorms, presuming the school is staying open, will you finally allow steampowered.com[STEAM] required ports

So now that people will be living in dorms, presuming the school is staying open, will you finally allow steampowered.com[STEAM] required ports through the firewall? If not you should let dorm students know that they can't play any PC games without a quality VPN[im sure against TOS]. Even on the secured wifi[login] instead of the open wifi @ neiu i'm sure you have some method of non-repudiation so why not just allow it on that network.
steam is a pc digital distribution platform that uses mostly TCP connections for their client software, i have been able to hop on games on our network because the UDP ports were open.

Answer

The Nest Residence Hall will have their own tech support, separate from UTS, so nothing will change on the main campus. Once you are a redisent at the Nest, you can speak to their tech team about this particular issue.
