UMass Amherst students can now connect gaming consoles and streaming devices to the UMASS-DEVICES network, currently available in residential areas on campus. Network-supported devices include: Nintendo devices, Microsoft Xbox, Sony PlayStation, Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, and AppleTV. Stay tuned as more device types will be added in the future!

To connect, first, register your device at https://devices.it.umass.edu. Log in with your NetID & password and follow the directions to connect. 

  • For more information on how to connect supported devices, see: https://umass.edu/it/umassdevices
  • For help, contact IT User Services at 413-545 -TECH (8324) or it@umass.edu.
    Note: We offer limited support for this network. Connectivity is not guaranteed and is limited to the devices listed above.

The ability to connect devices to the wireless network was a leading technology request from students and is consistent with the campus IT strategic plan.
