Finding Your Address

Wireless has been installed in all residence halls at University Park except White Course Apartments. You should be able to connect your computer or devices to the wireless network. If your device cannot connect with wireless or requires a wired connection, follow the instructions below while using the specific computer or device. Locate your built-in Ethernet address (Local Area Connection) for your wired connection. If you register the wireless address by mistake the wired connection will not work. At move-in, you will need a 25' Ethernet cable to connect your computer to the wall jack.

If your computer does not have a built-in Ethernet connection and you cannot connect it using wireless, you will need to purchase a USB Ethernet adapter. Make sure to plug in the USB Ethernet adapter before you find your address. Adapters are available at computer stores and online. Macs can use a USB or Thunderbolt Ethernet adapter, which are available wherever Apple computers are sold.

Please copy your Ethernet Adapter address without dashes to use during registration. Only one wired computer connection per student is supported.
