Static IP addresses are needed for devices such as printers or servers that need the same IP address all the time. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is the campus standard and should be used for all devices that do not need a static IP address. A Static IP address must be assigned by OIT and it must be manually configured in the device, it is not configured automatically. Static IP addresses are not assigned for UCB Wireless.
All public IP space for CU Boulder can be described by the following notation:

Only campus IT Practitioners (ITPs) can request and obtain a static IP. Visit the Campus IT Practitioners & IT Communications Liaisons page for a list of current ITPs, or if you need to become one, fill out the ITP form to submit your information.
