Q: Can I use my own network switch/router at the OSC?


No, you must not attach any other network devices which have not been properly registered. To add another device, you will be required to place a further request. If there are additional network drops available in your area, these will be used to attach your equipment. If no additional network drops are available in your location for attaching additional computing equipment, a new network drop or OSCit managed switch must be installed. The cost of this equipment must be covered by a faculty grant. Exceptions are made only if the equipment is owned by OSCit and if the devices attached are for general/public OSC use (e.g. general use computer laboratories).
