Request a static IP address at IU

At Indiana University, most computers have dynamic IP addresses assigned by DHCP. UITS recognizes that in some situations DHCP assignment of IP addresses is either highly impractical or impossible. Commonly acknowledged exceptions to DHCP assignment include departmental servers, printers, client systems with static IP assignments (public or private) for hardened security situations.

Campus Networks now uses DHCP reservations for static IP requests outside of the Data Centers. This allows for static IPs to be assigned to devices through DHCP based on MAC address. When using DHCP reservations, system administrators should only need to ensure their system is set for DHCP.

Generally, UITS staff or area local UITS support people submit static IP requests.
