Networking Home

The UMSL Networking Department is responsible for installing and maintaining all of the network activity and equipment for the University including Staff/Faculty, Lab/Classrooms, and Student dorms. All together, we maintain an average of over 11,000 wired ports, with about 8,000 of those being active ethernet ports.

In addition to maintenance, the Network staff designs and deploys network upgrades to keep pace with current technology.

Staff and Faculty who currently have a data port in their office, pay a yearly fee of $525, which includes activation and maintenance. All student port fees are included in the residential contract. Students are responsible for purchasing a network card for their computer.
