Device Registration

Gaming consoles and media devices are not granted access to the Holy Cross College campus network by default.  In order to use these devices on the network they must first be registered at the Game and Media Registration website.

Go to Game and Media Registration website

To register your device you will need to provide your Holy Cross network username and password, as well as the MAC address for the device you wish to have access to the network. The MAC address uniquely identifies your piece of equipment and is permanently attached to it by the manufacturer.  Many times, the MAC address will be printed on a label that appears on the back or bottom of your device.  However, if you cannot find this label, or there is no label showing your device's MAC address, you can simply follow the steps below pertaining to your particular network device to find the MAC address.

Once you know your device's MAC address, you can register it using the Game and Media Registration website.

If additional assistance is required, please submit a ticket to your IT staff.
