Get Connected

I am a Literature affiliate with an assigned office in the Literature Building and I would like to connect my computer to the Internet with an Ethernet Cable in my office

Every office and seminar room in the Literature building has an Ethernet port that is activated (either the port labled 1A or 1B (try both!) . Check out our IP Registration Webpage to get started. Note: The Department is not responsible for personal equipment left in offices - lock it!

I want to use wireless in the Literature building or around campus. What are the UCSD-PROTECTED and UCSD-GUEST wireless networks?

Let's take the last question first. There are two wireless networks available to you on campus: UCSD-PROTECTED -- which is an encrypted connection and intended for Faculty, Staff and students that will be using the network for a long period of time, and UCSD-GUEST -- which is intended for guests to campus that just want to access the internet for a day or so.

Checkout the wireless overview webpage for information on how to setup your device(s) on these networks.

Please note: All Wireless Equipment you wish to use in your office (apple airport express or wireless printer) {{ must {{ be approved by and registered with Adminstrative Computing and Telecommunications (ACT). For more information: UCSD Wireless guidelines

How can I access UCSD Library resources from off-campus?

Where are the computer labs on campus?

The Academic Computing & Media Services Website has a list of all the labs here.

Who can use the Literature computer room?

** Important: The computer room is currently closed. Scheduled reopen: October 2, 2014 **

The Literature Department computer room is for Literature Affiliates (Faculty, NSF, Graduate Students and Visiting Scholars). The computer room has 4 iMACs computers and two 'pay-as-you-go" printers (PaperCut Information). You need a personal omnilock code in order to enter the room which you can obtain by completing a Literature Computer Services Application. Please allow 2 working days for your application to be processed. The Literature computer room is intended for users that are already familiar with PC and/or MAC, printing, word processing, and internet basics -- we cannot provide onsite training, and equipment is repaired as time permits.

The computer room is "as is". We recommend that you signup for an ACMS Printing Account "just in case". This account allows you to print laser quality printouts from one of the ACMS computer lab printers. The Literature department cannot be held responsible for printer or computer "down time".

Help! I have a personal computer that has been compromised and now I cannot access the internet!

Depending on how serious the intrusion, you may have to wipe out your computer completely and reinstall the operating system and all applications and data. The Department cannot provide any software for personal compuers. Your computer must meet the UCSD minimum Security Standards before it can be brought back online. After your computer meets these standards, you will need to Contact Deborah Morrow Yu and she will request the block on your computer lifted.
