Connect a Device to the NMU Network

For full access to the Internet and NMU network services over the NMU on-campus wired and wireless areas, you must register each network interface (wired and wireless are separate entries) on your computer. Before you register, you will only be able to access limited on-campus Web sites, and you will not have E-mail access.

Keep the following mind while registering:

  • Must be on-campus and using the network to register.
  • Users will be required to register their machine once per semester.
  • Computers with wired and wireless connections will require that both connections be registered.
  • Your NMU account must be active in order to have devices registered. 
There is no limit to the number of computers you can register. However, please note that your NMU ID will be attached to each computer you register, and you will be responsible for the actions performed using this machine.
