In Mac OS X, manually configure your computer to connect to the network at IU Bloomington or IUPUI

In Mac OS X 10.5 and later, before configuring your Indiana University Bloomington or IUPUI network settings, find out whether you are using DHCP or have a static IP address. If you are in campus housing, you are using DHCP. If you are faculty or staff and are unsure, contact your department's IT Pro.

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).
