Wireless Accounts for Visitors

Visiting Researchers/Scholars

For Departments or centers who will have a long-term visiting researcher/scholar, or similar position, the proper route to gain wireless access for these users is to provide them with the appropriate privileges within the HRMS system. Please contact your departmental administrative staff to assist with this function. Users should be provided with these two privileges: 'Treat Like an Employee' and 'Public Network Access'.


Coupons and conferences codes for the "attwifi" wireless network are now available for purchase at the Campus Computer Store for units wishing to sponsor access for visitors.

The university has negotiated with AT&T to provide wireless access to visitors on a new campus wireless network called "attwifi". This convenient service allows visitors to use their credit card to purchase wireless access as they would in airports or coffee shops. It also protects the integrity and security of the campus network by moving visitor traffic to another service. The "attwifi" network is available in most campus locations.

For more information, please contact (471-6387).
