Device Enrollment

Device Enrollment

All gaming and media devices must be enrolled before they can be used on the wireless network or residence hall wired networks. Only gaming/media devices may be enrolled; student computers, tablets and smart phones initiate the registration process automatically upon connecting to the University network.

You will need to know the MAC adddress of your device's network adapter prior to enrolling. Instructions for retrieving the MAC address are below.

Enrolling Your Device

To enroll your gaming/media device:

  • Connect it to the wired or wireless network, as desired.
    • Your device must remain connected to the wired or wireless network during enrollment, using only the network adapter you are attempting to enroll.
    • Wired network connectivity is only available upon request in residence halls, beginning Fall 2014.
    • More information on the University wireless network can be found on the WiFi Network page.
  • Using a device with a web browser (computer, tablet or smart phone), access the SafeConnect Device Enrollment web page.
    • Log in using your HuskyID and password.
    • Enter the MAC address of your gaming/media device.
    • Select the appropriate device type.
    • Select "Enroll Device".
    • Repeat the previous three steps for any additional devices. You may enroll up to five gaming/media devices per HuskyID.
    • When you are finished, select "Logout".
