Data Jack Connection Request

If you are currently using this computer on the jack you are wanting to activate, you do not need this page - the jack is already active. If you are in the dorms, you need to register your computer.

This page will guide you through the procedure to request for an existing data jack to be activated. Activations are free, and if there is sufficient switch capacity in the building they are expected to be done within one business day of the request. We ask that you only request jacks that you will be using; we cannot activate every jack in a building. We may disconnect jacks that have not been used in order to accommodate new requests.

If no jack exists yet in the location where you need one, please visit the Information Technology Service Request Page where you can fill out a Service Request Form for a quote to have new cabling installed.

If you have any trouble filling out this form, please contact the Information Technology Service Desk (813-974-1222) for assistance.

You must either submit a separate request for each jack you need activated, even if they are on the same face plate, or indicate the quantity in the notes. USF IT personnel only provisions the infrastructure and reserves the supplies for the requested number of activations and cannot perform ad-hoc work requested on the spot.

If you have a long list of jacks or a request that does not fit in the format below please contact the Information Technology Service Desk (813-974-1222) for assistance.
