Register a WiFi Device


Wireless devices like smart TVs, gaming console, and smart home devices must be registered in order to connect to the GV-Gamenet WiFi.

To register a device:

Please Note: If your device will be using a wired Internet connection there is no need to register it. Just connect an Ethernet cable to an active port in your room and you're good to go.


  • Fill out the requested information. Make sure the wireless MAC address is accurate (it will always be 12 characters long and can only include letters A-F and numbers 0-9). If you don't see your device listed under "Device Type", please select "Other" and enter a custom Device Type.

  • Click "Request" and your device registration will be processed within a couple minutes. Once you receive an email confirmation, connect your device to GV-Gamenet WiFi.

Please Note:

  • Each device has a unique wireless MAC address. Please enter this information carefully and accurately or your device registration will be successful.
  • Google Chromecasts and Google Homes do not work on campus at this time because of the way they authenticate to a network.

If you run into any issues during or after registration, please contact IT Services at (616) 331-2101 or it@gvsu.edu.
