Changes to Registering New Devices on the Network

Effective Date: July 14, 2021

On July 14, AIT will be making a change to the way that new devices are registered on our wireless network.  Although this will have no impact on any devices you have already registered, it will matter the next time you register a device.

Key Benefits and Features

  • Making registration for a new device even simpler
  • Preparing the campus for a new wireless network called “eduroam.” More to come later about eduroam!

Impact on College Community

Many of you may not notice this change.  But the next time you register a device (for example, if you bring a new mobile device to campus and connect to our wireless network) you will need to use your email address as your Username instead of using your NetID. (Students will use their email address as their Username.)

There is no action required for devices that are already registered on the network.
