Loyola NetReg

What is Loyola NETREG? Every new device connecting to the network via wired or wireless must be registered. Registrations are maintained for 120 days or for 14 days of inactivity, which ever comes first. The following are the five most commonly asked questions regarding Loyola's Netreg.

  • What is Network Access Control? Network Access Control (NAC) is a way to control what devices are allowed on Loyola's network. This ensures that Loyola's network is used to serve the University's instructional, research, health care, administrative and public service missions.
  • Why does it check for peer-to-peer software programs? Please refer to the University Information Security Office and their policies on peer-to-peer software.
  • Are you scanning my machine for personal information about me? No. We only check to make sure it is an approved device for our network and that it is not running certain peer-to-peer software programs. Some information about your computer (such as the operating system and anti-virus program used) may be collected, but no personally identifiable information is collected. The program does not collect any information about your files, software used or Internet browsing habits.
