Cabling and Port Activation

OU IT provides the infrastructure for network port and cabling to meet the digital communication needs of campus staff and faculty.

Users can request activation of existing Ethernet ports in their location, installation of new ports and cabling. In addition, the OU Facilities team can run new cabling and drops for new construction or remodeling projects.


This service is available to Campus Departments, Faculty and Staff.

Orders are typically fulfilled within 2 business weeks, however, holidays, weather and larger projects such as new buildings, renovations, departmental moves, etc. can vary the times set for completion.


Cabling installation and activation cost will vary based on hardware, infrastructure and location. For that reason the cost of $325 is an estimate and may not reflect actual billing for your request.

Billing for cabling is completed by IT billing on a monthly basis with a departmental billing account. If your department does not have a billing account or if you would like an additional billing account for a special project, you can contact our staff at 405-325-HELP [4357].
