Would you like to connect your gaming device or wireless speakers to UNC's Wi-Fi network? UNC utilizes a system called Captive Portal to register personal devices on-campus.

**You will need the MAC address from your device before you proceed.**

  1. Review the lists of approved devices (at the bottom of this post) to confirm that your device can be registered.
  2. Go to our Support Portal  and login with your UNC username/password. 
  3. In the Get Help... search bar, type "DEVICE REGISTRATION"
  4. The service request called "Device Internet Registration" will appear on the left hand side under the SERVICE REQUEST section. Click the More Info button then select New Request
  5. Fill out all of the required information and submit the request, including the MAC address for your device.
  6. You will receive an email once your device is registered through the system.
  7.  Reboot your device and it should be ready to be used on the network.
