Registering Your Computer
on the UCM Network

In order to use the wired Internet from any computer workstation, UCM must assign the workstation an Internet Protocol (IP) address.  UCM uses a registration method to assign IP addresses to computers located in University Housing rooms and apartments.  The method requires students to register their workstations (PCs, Macs, and gaming devices) on the network by following the instructions described below.

NOTE:  Access to any off-campus web site will be blocked until registration is complete.  System updates should be applied immediately after registration.

After completing these steps, you will have successfully registered your workstation on the UCM network and have full access to UCM’s network resources, including the internet. 

NOTE:  To register a device that is not browser-capable, such as a gaming device, you must know the MAC address of that device.  You may register it by the method noted above; simply navigate to , place the MAC address of the device in the box, then click “register”.  This will not delete the registration for the workstation you are using.  It will add the registration for the non-browser capable device for which you have provided the MAC address.

If you have any questions about this process, please contact the Technology Support Center at 660-543-4357.
