Before you arrive on campus

Items that must be completed if you choose to bring your own device for testing.

If you are bringing your own device and not participating in the CCI program, we strongly advise you to complete the following steps prior to the computer distribution/connection day during orientation. The items below can be completed off-campus and will make the connection process during orientation quicker and easier.  Several of these steps only take a few minutes to complete and the more you do in advance, the sooner you will have access to the network on campus.

  1. Register your device on the UNC network.
    Each device must be registered for both wireless and wired access on the UNC network.
