We provide end-to-end wired network services including design, installation, troubleshooting and maintenance. 

Offices and campus housing have network jacks available. In most cases, connecting the computer to the network jack with an ethernet cord will provide immediate access to the network. If the network jack isn't activated (especially the case in residence halls), contact the IT Help Desk with the number displayed on the network jack.

If you are in need of a network jack installation, please contact the IT Help Desk (fees may apply).


NKU connects to Internet2. Internet2 is an extremely high bandwidth, private connection between universities, libraries, research facilities and others working to further scientific discovery and innovation. Over 266 institutions currently collaborate on this network.

This connection is made possible via a collaboration by the Council of Postsecondary Education, the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville (the collaboration is referred to as KyRON).
