NOTE: The University is implementing the requirement for the 802.1x policy on the campus wired network over the latter half of 2020. As a building's network is switched to requiring the new policy, it will at the same time no longer require DHCP registration for devices connected to the wired network. Contact your departmental IT staff if you have questions about connecting to the wired network in your building.
The University wired network uses the 802.1x security policy, which requires login with a NetID and password. This provides additional security to the campus network.
If you connect a computer on campus via the Ethernet port, you or the computer will need to be authenticated in order to connect to the network. If you are connecting a VoIP phone, fax machine, or printer to an Ethernet jack, the network will recognize the device type automatically. For servers, or other devices that aren't suited to login by an individual, talk to your department's IT staff.
Departmental IT staff will configure the computers they administer. If you are configuring your own machine, see:
- Wired Network Configuration - Windows 10
- Wired Network Configuration - Windows 7
- Wired Network Configuration - Mac
If your computer is not configured, after 20-30 seconds of attempting to connect it will redirect to a web portal where you can log in with your NetID and password.
Alternately, you can always connect to the campus wireless network, UAWiFi, with NetID and password.
Guests to campus can:
Anyone with an active NetID can log onto the campus network.
