The university’s annual network registration process (on Mies Campus only) will begin on Friday, August 2 at 9:15 p.m.
Annual network authentication and registration are necessary to secure the shared technology resources of the Illinois Tech community and comply with federal regulations.
The following devices will need to be registered:
(1) New devices or devices that have not operated on the Illinois Tech WIRED network in the past four months (i.e., if the last time any of your devices (laptop, desktop, etc.) were connected to the wired network was on April 2, 2019, or earlier, that specific device will be prompted for a network registration)
(2) Student-owned entertainment devices that have not operated on the Illinois Tech WIRELESS network in the past four months must be registered. For clarification, if the last time any of your entertainment devices (gaming consoles, streaming devices, etc.) were connected to the wireless network was on April 2, 2019, or earlier, that specific device will be prompted for a network registration.
For all other regularly used devices, there is nothing you need to do.
For devices that must be registered, starting the evening of August 2, 2019, the first time that you use a web browser, such as Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, etc., you will be prompted to register your device. If you are not prompted, please type in the URL: https://dhcp.iit.edu and follow the registration directions. Please be sure to use the correct email address format, e.g., @hawk.iit.edu for students or @iit.edu for faculty and staff.
Additionally, during the registration process, you will be asked—depending on the type of device you are registering—to “accept” or check a box and “validate” your awareness, understanding, and acceptance of two Illinois Tech policies: “Standards of Ethics and Business Conduct” and the “Acceptable Usage Policy,” which you should read before you “accept” or “validate.” You must then reboot your device to finalize the process.
If you have any questions on how to register your device, please contact the Support Desk by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, by phone at 312.567.3375 (on campus x7DESK), or by stopping by the second floor of Paul V. Galvin Library.
Thank you for your cooperation.
