About Research Office Network Usage

In the past, in order to access the university network via network outlets in the research offices, it was necessary to submit a request for network connection to the head of the Organization for Information Management and Communication with every change in connection equipment (new installation, model change, or disposal). However, from 2019, by submitting the attached "Agreement for a Research Office Network Usage", you will no longer be required to submit individual requests each time.
