Network Registration Overview
The University of Rochester network is provided for the University of Rochester community. The network is only as secure as its weakest link. No matter how robust our security systems are designed to be, any single computer connected to the network that is not patched, does not run anti-virus, or is otherwise compromised can become the victim of an attack and infect other computers on the network.
The goal of network registration is to register each computer connected to the wired network in order to better protect University of Rochester information and resources. In the event that a device is causing network or security problems, network registration will provide University IT with the ability to more quickly resolve the issue and ensure the safety of other computers on the network.
Registering for Network Access
In order to register your computer for network access, you will need to know your UR Active Directory account username and password. If you do not have this information or have never setup the account, visit https://myidentity.rochester.edu.
After obtaining your UR Active Directory account username and password, you will need to register your device for network access.
