Residence Access Concluded
Start May 03 10:30 Stop May 03 11:00

ITSS will be upgrading the server that manages network connections in residence that use a cable and wall jack. There will be brief interruptions to the service during the change over time.

We do not anticipate any issues for currently registered devices – your existing registration should migrate smoothly to the new server. However, if you do experience any problems after this change is made, the new system will allow you to register your devices yourself through the web. To do so, after the change on May 3:

1. Open a web browser and go to netreg.smu.ca. If you’re device does not have a browser then you will have to ask the ITSS helpdesk to register your device under your S#.

2. Enter your s-number and password, read the Acceptable Computer Usage Policy if you have not already done so and click if you accept the terms click the Accept button.

3. After successfully registering shut down for at least one minute to complete the Netreg process.

If you have any problems, please contact the ITSS Help Desk at 902 496 8111 or helpdesk@smu.ca
