Members of the Haverford Community can now register certain streaming video devices, e-books and game consoles for use on the wireless network.
We ask that you start by submitting the MAC address of your devices’s wireless network adapter. The Mac Address is a number that looks something like 1a:2b:3c:a4:c5:e6 and can typically be found in your game console’s settings or on a sticker on the device.
How It Works
1. Initiate the process with IITS by filling out the form below to submit your MAC address. You’ll get a ticket open notification from IITS indicating that your request has been received and is being processed.
2. You will receive an email from IITS directing you to a web page to connect, or register, your device’s MAC address to your account. You may connect (register) up to three devices to your account.
3. You’ll receive another e-mail from IITS when your registration is complete indicating that you’re ready to go. Do not attempt to log on to HC-Game before receiving the email: if you attempt to connect before the process is completed you will be temporarily locked out of the network.
4. After receiving the confirmation email, connect your device to the HC-Game wireless network using the password havgame123. Once supported devices are connected, they are ready for use.
If you have problems or questions at any stage in the process, please contact the ProDesk at x1480 or ProDesk@haverford.edu.

An Important Note
When you register a device on the network, you become responsible for its use. You are responsible for the legal and policy compliant use of any device registered in your name. Please be sure to read the Acceptable Use Policy and Copyright Supplement on the IITS Policy and Planning Website if you’re unclear about your responsibilities. Remember, improper use of the Haverford network and copyright violations come with fines and other sanctions and you should be fully aware of these before registering any device.
