Annual Illinois Tech Network Registration Scheduled for August 5

The annual network registration process will begin on Friday, August 5, 2016 at 9:15 p.m.

In general, annual network authentication and registration are necessary to secure the shared technology resources of the Illinois Tech community and comply with federal regulations.

Continuing with last year’s well-received change, 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 one of your devices (laptop, desktop, iPad, cell phone, etc.) was connected to the network was on April 1, 2016 or earlier, that specific device will be prompted for a network registration. For all other devices, there is nothing you need to do. This enhanced process eliminates the need to re-register regularly used devices.

For devices that must register, starting the evening of August 5, 2016, the first time you use a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc., you will be prompted to register your device. If you are not prompted, please type in the URL: or and follow the registration directions. (Please be sure to choose your correct email address format, e.g. for students or for faculty and staff, from the dropdown box).

Additionally, during the registration process, you may be asked to certify your awareness of Illinois Tech’s two policies: “Standards of Ethics and Business Conduct;” and “Acceptable Usage Policy.” All you need to do after reading the policies is to certify your understanding of them, and, if you agree to abide by them, place a checkmark in the designated boxes and click “Continue.”  You then must reboot your device to finalize the process.

If you have any questions, contact the Support Desk at or call 312.567.3375 (on campus x7DESK).

Thank you for your support.
