Restricted Wired Network


A wired only network for aging assets that do not meet minimum network security requirements. Wi-Fi access to this network is not provided.


University of Richmond owned assets that are identified through penetration testing or other means that do not meet the minimum network security requirements may be connected to the Restricted Network will be restricted by the following guidelines:

  • Cannot connect to any University systems outside of the Restricted Network. Some infrastructure services, such as DNS and NTP, are permitted.
  • Systems will not use centralized University authentication (NetID and passwords).
  • Systems will not be in public locations.  Physical access must be controlled with faculty/staff supervision.
  • Systems will be assigned, for asset management purposes, directly to a faculty/staff member and their department. 
  • Information Services will be responsible for hardware maintenance of University-owned workstations if parts are available in stock, and network connectivity for devices purchased through information Services.
  • Back up of data on any devices on this network will be the responsibility of the faculty/staff.

Once a computer is identified as a risk to the Network and moved to the restricted network, Faculty and Staff assigned to the computer should work with IS staff on rectifying the security issues.
