Students can quickly and easily set up their web-enabled devices such as game systems and smart TV’s on the UMS network. 

Ensure your device has been seen on the network

In order for your device to be registered, it will need to be detected on the network prior to filling in this form. This helps us ensure that the network is seeing the appropriate network interface.

Wireless Devices

For most wireless devices, you will need to go into the settings of the device and specify the wireless network to use. For UMS campuses and centers, you will need to specify the Tempest network.

Wired Devices

For wired devices, you will need to ensure that the device has finished powering on and is connected to a live ethernet port.

MAC Address

In order to register your device, it must first be seen on the network. You will also need to know the MAC address, or hardware address, of the network card. This is usually found on the underside or back of the device. If you do not see it there, you may need to go into the network settings of the device.

 Your UMS Account must be activated in order to register a device. If you have your ID# and Activation Key, visit Click the Account Activation link and follow the instructions on that page.
