Network Registration (NetReg)

Every year for the fall semester the IT department requires that all devices (computers, smartphones, game consoles, tablets, etc.) that connect to the Amherst network register on the network. Any device not registered will be unable to access the Amherst network or the Internet. The exception is computers that connect to Ethernet ports behind the Amherst Firewall; these do not have to be registered.
