To determine a computer’s network status and level of access, visit networkcheck.princeton.edu. There are four color-coded status messages:
If your computer is enrolled in the University’s Endpoint Management Security Program or you are a Princeton student, you will see the green message indicating you have full access. There is no action needed.
If you see a blue message, you may be connecting via GlobalProtect VPN to access the University network. Although VPN allows full access, please work with your local IT staff to determine if your computer is enrolled in the program.
If you see a yellow message, you may be connecting from home, a wired connection, or a non-Princeton network. To determine your network status, please connect to eduroam on campus and visit networkcheck.princeton.edu again to verify.
If you see a red message, your access to protected applications and printing may be limited as you are connecting to the University network using a personal computer or one that is not enrolled in the University’s Endpoint Management Security Program.
To determine if a computer is enrolled in the program, refer to the My Devices page in the Service Portal or contact your local IT staff. If you don’t have an IT support person, please open a ticket or contact the OIT Service Desk at 609 258 4357 (8-HELP).
