Secure Your Computer

Visit our computer security best practices page. It is your responsibility to secure your computer before you connect to the network. Life is much easier if you stay secure to begin with!

Connecting to the Network

IP addresses are automatically assigned via DHCP in bothBagley Halland the Chemistry Building. You don't need to get permission to connect with DHCP. Just configure your settings to use DHCP ("Obtain an IP address automatically" on Windows.) Most new computers come with this set as the default.


If you need to access your computer from some other computer, you'll need a static IP address. In that case, you'll need to fill out a Network Connection Request form, available inBagley Hall363. Return it to Sally Weaks.

Wireless Access for UW Visitors

Do your visitors need wireless access while working or learning at the UW? Faculty and staff members can go online to give guests temporary access to UW's wireless networks.
