Systems and devices that need an IP (Internet Protocol) address to connect to the campus network should be configured to obtain their IP address using DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol).
A static or fixed IP address is assigned only for devices that require them, such as on-campus networked printers and servers. A static IP Address also requires a DNS (Domain Name Service) address.
Current faculty and staff at UH can use the IP-DNS Management website to create and/or update one or more static IP-DNS addresses. If you have trouble using this service, please contact Information Technology Support Center at 713-743-1411, or use our Live Chat service at www.uh.edu/livechat for assistance.
