IT Division - Network

DNS/DHCP Request

The Domain Name System (DNS) and Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) services provided by the University are critical network infrastructure components. All WKU network users utilize these services constantly and most do so without ever realizing it.

In special cases, some clients may require custom DNS or DHCP configurations for a project. For these instances, a request needs to be placed with the WKU-IT Helpdesk. The request will be routed to the appropriate group and the needs evaluated on a case by case basis. While such requests are not the most common, they are not unusual either and well established procedures are in place to care for them in the most expeditious manner possible.

Please contact the Helpdesk for more information at 270-745-7000.
