FAQ Network Registration for Guests/Visitors

Why do I have to register my computer or other devices?

All electronic devices connecting to the Amherst College Ethernet or wireless (Wi-Fi) networks must go through a network registration process. Network registration (NetReg) allows the IT department to associate contact information with your device(s). Should there be a problem, it will allow us to get in touch with you quickly.

NetReg FAQ for Amherst Community

Why do I have to register my device(s) such as computers, wireless devices, etc.?

Registering your device(s) allows the IT department to associate your Amherst username with your devices. That way, if IT suspects that your computer or other device(s) get infected with a virus or need to be isolated from the campus network, you can be contacted in a timely manner.
