The university’s annual network registration process (on Mies Campus only) will begin on Friday, July 27 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.
Only new devices or devices that have not operated on the Illinois Tech network in the past four months must be registered. For clarification, if the last time any of your devices (laptop, desktop, iPad, cell phone, etc.) were connected to the network was on March 27, 2018 or earlier, that specific device will be prompted for a network registration. For all other regularly-used devices, there is nothing you will need to do.
For devices that must be registered, starting the evening of July 27, the first time 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 whether you are registering a desktop/laptop or mobile device – 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,” both of which you should read before you “accept” or “validate.” You must then reboot your device to finalize the process.
If you have any questions about registering 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 the Paul V. Galvin Library.
Thank you for your assistance.
