At IUB or IUPUI, where can I purchase an Ethernet cable?

On this page:


Standard cables

Purchase a standard Cat 5 or Cat 6 Ethernet straight-through patch cord at any electronics store.

IU-specific cables

If you work in an IU-affiliated building, you can buy an Ethernet cable at IUB's Computer Connection in the Indiana Memorial Union (IMU). The cables are available in lengths of 25 or 50 feet, in both IU proprietary and standard (straight-through) configurations.

Notes:
  • IU-specific cables are already installed in campus housing where needed; residents do not need to purchase them.
  • IUPUI does not sell Ethernet cables at the bookstore.

Cable purchases for IU offices

Gray straight-through cables and gray IU wall cables are available from the vendor, Anixter, in lengths from 4 to 15 feet. Order Ethernet cables directly from the vendor, using the Kuali Financial System (KFS).

Manufacturer part numbers for these cables are:
