Network Self-Registration (SNSR)

Secure self-registration of computers on the Stanford Network

In September 2024, rates will change for several technology services provided by University IT. View FY25 rate changes.

The Stanford Network Self-Registration (SNSR) service combines a web-based self-registration application and the Stanford Network Registration Tool (SNRT) to streamline registration of computers on the Stanford Network.



Through the use of NetDB template options, the system accommodates some custom configuration — on a network segment basis — by local network administrators (LNAs) for their wired networks.

Self-registration is also available for computers accessing Stanford's centrally-supported wireless networks.

  • An easy process for registering computers on the Stanford Network
  • Improved desktop security
  • Improved accuracy of network records

Designed for

Faculty, students, and staff; academic and administrative departments that administer their own wireless networks


A SUNet ID is required for self-registration.


Free of charge

Get started

Stanford Network Self-Registration is offered as a per-network opt-in service.

To have this service added to a wired network, an LNA should request assistance from a Department Network Engineer via Help ticket.
