Wiring Services

Getting connected to the wired network on campus couldn't be easier!  Sometimes, however, you'll find that there just might not be quite enough plugs in the wall for all of the toys you want to get connected.  But rest easy, OIT is here to help!  By simply emailing or calling Technology Support at (405) 974-2255, you can request additional network "drops" to be installed in your office or other location.  

This type of request does involve a cost, and the amount is specific to exactly where you are wanting this new network connection to be created.  Technology Support will make sure to get your request into the right hands so that a quote can be prepared for you to give you an idea of those costs.  Quote Preparation generally takes up to 2 weeks from the time of your request.  If you agree to the costs, work will begin as soon as possible to get it installed.  


Networking Services

Networking Services at UCO can involve many different things.  Generally speaking, it can be anything from getting your computer physically on the network, providing a unique network address so that it can get to the Internet (DHCP), to giving your webserver a unique name on the Internet (DNS).
