If you bring a computer, smartphone, tablet or gaming device to campus, it must be registered before connecting to the College network. Registration simply associates your name with your device(s), so that we can contact you quickly if there are problems. To register from on campus, launch any Web browser and go to: http://registration.macalester
Want to get on wireless? The 'Macalester-Student' wireless network segment is set aside solely for your use. To get on it, you must enter a wireless 'key' one time. (The 2016-2017 student wireless key remains the same as it was last year, so if you are returning, you should be good.) The student key was sent out via the ITS-Alerts-Student list this morning.
Please do not share this key - if you do, you may compromise the security and confidentiality of your data. Be assured that guests have their own dedicated network segment ('Macalester-Guest,' which does not require a key. Have Mom and Dad use this one.)
If you have any problems with your computer, stop by the ITS Help Desk in Neill 314. We're open Friday 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, also 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.
