Network Services: Per Person Charging Model
    Yale University recovers the cost of network services via a per person-based rate structure. The fee applies to all faculty, staff, postdocs
    and students, regardless of whether they have a computer connected to the network. Excluded from per person pool unless specifically
    enrolled are: associates (primarily residents); casual employees; consultants; retirees; voluntary faculty; anyone outside the Schools of
    Medicine or Nursing. Please see for the rate structure. You may connect as many devices as you need to
    the network without paying additional monthly fees. This applies to both wired and wireless network connections. Please note that the
    existing one-time installation fees will still be assessed for each device. Every device you connect to the network must be registered with
    ITS-Med, to enable us to provide faster and better support and to manage network security.
Detailed Order
1. Network Connection
    A machine needs to be connected to the campus network to use email, Meeting Maker, network back-up, or any other available account
    or service. Machines on campus and in many off campus locations use an Ethernet network jack/connection to connect to the campus
    network. Ethernet jacks are often one of several outlets on a wall plate with telephone jacks. Newer wall plates have icons that indicate
    whether the outlet is telephone (℡) or Ethernet ( ). If you do not know if you have a live circuit or the location of a live circuit, we can
    send a technician to locate it and/or check if it is working.
    •    Internal non routable IP: will allow you access to most resources on the Yale University network, but will strictly limit access to
         external Internet Resources. For more details, see

2. Device Information
    After determining how you will connect to the network, please tell us what you are connecting to the network.
         A NIC address is required for registration of a wireless device or access point. If you do not know how to determine the NIC
         address please visit
         If additional users need to log into the machine, please specify the name or NetId. You may use a second sheet if necessary.

3. Services
    These services represent on-site technical assistance from a Desktop Support Technician.

        the user and securing the device.
