Streaming / Media / Other Wireless Devices

You can attempt registering any device on the network, however we cannot guarantee all devices will be able to function in our enterprise network environment. In some cases you may have success using certain devices but ITS cannot guarantee it and cannot troubleshoot issues related to the use of unsupported technology on our network.

The only devices guaranteed to not work and be restricted on our network are wireless printers and wireless routers. These are forbidden to connect to our network, so please do not bring them to campus with you. Most wireless printers have USB functionality, so we highly recommend utilizing that.
