Every office and seminar room in the Literature building has an Ethernet port that is activated -- it is usually numbered 1A. Check out our IP Registration Page
to get started. Note: The Department is not responsible for personal equipment left in offices - lock it!
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
page for information on how to setup your device(s) on these networks.

The Literature Department computer room is for Literature Affiliates (Faculty, NSF, Graduate Students and Visiting Scholars). The computer room has Mac Minis and two 'pay-as-you-go" printers (PaperCut Information
), a scanner and a typewriter. 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".
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. 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.
