Wired Internet Access: Faculty & Staff

This service provides Internet connectivity to classrooms, residence halls and offices across the university, as well as access to University tenants. Wired connectivity is faster, more secure and more robust than wireless internet access. It is also used to support GW unified communications voice services like desk phones, faxes, and call-centers.

Wired connections are $28/month per data jack and may be subject to an additional one time installation fee, if a new jack is required.  The standard connection provided is up to 1GB capable. For adds, moves and changes please submit a request.

The scheduled maintenance window for this service will be every other Wednesday 2:00 am - 5:00 am. Customers are asked to limit access to the service during this time, as services may be unavailable or unreliable. Customers will be notified in advance if the maintenance window will be utilized.

For support, please contact the IT Support Center (ITSC) at (202)-994-4948. The ITSC can also be contacted by email at [email protected] or by opening a web request at http://it.gwu.edu.
