On-campus connections

Ethernet in campus housing (IUB and IUPUI)

For details, see In IUB or IUPUI campus housing, how do I connect to the network?

Ethernet in campus offices

To set up a computer in your office on campus, contact your department's IT Pro. The data jack needs to be activated and an IP address assigned.

Note:
To learn the name of your department's IT Pro, consult your supervisor or your departmental website. If you still cannot identify your IT Pro, call the UITS Support Center at 812-855-6789 (Bloomington) or 317-274-4357 (Indianapolis).

Wireless on campus

If your computer has a wireless network card, you can make a wireless connection to the IU network at most locations on IU campuses.

For visitors to IU

If you are not affiliated with IU but are visiting campus, you can use AT&T wireless. See How can IU visitors connect to AT&T wireless free of charge?

Note:
Indiana University and Purdue University allow researchers and visitors wireless access to their own networks from each campus. For details, see Wireless access at Indiana University and Purdue University.

Off-campus connections

Cable modem or DSL connections (outside ISPs)

For help setting up cable modem or DSL service, contact an Internet service provider (ISP) in your area. Your ISP will give you instructions to configure your computer. You may then wish to use a VPN connection to access certain resources; see Connecting to IU's SSL VPN for individuals and groups from a Windows or OS X workstation.
