Discover Your MAC Address

Staff Network Connections require registration by a member of the IT Service (NUIT) who will need to know your network MAC address. A MAC address is a 12-digit hexadecimal number made up from the numbers 0 to 9 and letters A to F. It is usually split into 6 pairs of 2-digit numbers, separated by colons or dashes, e.g. 08:00:20:02:90:4c


The MAC address is usually printed on your network card, printed on a label on the bottom of your laptop, or it comes with the documentation for your computer. If it is not printed on a label on your computer, follow the instructions for your operating system on the Computers MAC address page to discover your MAC address.

Game Consoles

You will usually find the MAC address printed on a label next to the serial number for your device. See the Game Console MAC address page to find out how to discover the MAC address on the most common game consoles.
