USNH Network Registration


This article will provide information about USNH Network Registration.



USNH implements network registration via a captive portal environment. When a new device connects to a USNH network it does so in a limited access state. That means there are very few things it can do, and some of those things are re-routed to the network registration systems. How that appears on a particular device will vary by its operating system, but in all cases, a network browser will need to be opened to reach the registration interface. Some operating systems will do so automatically.

  • All users of the USNH network tacitly or explicitly agree to the USNH Acceptable Use Policy.
  • Registration pages appear somewhat different on wireless connections and wired connections.
  • Devices connected to the wireless network (KSC-Open, PSU-Open, or UNH-Open) will see the following page (UNH Example):

  • Guest registration is available via social authentication (e.g. Google, LinkedIn) or by submitting your name and personal email address. Both wireless and wired registration pages have links to register as a guest similar to this page (PSU Example):
