This article provides Guest Network Sponsors with instructions in order to provide guest users with access to the campus network.
The Guest Network allows faculty and full-time staff to sponsor guests on the wireless network by creating temporary accounts they may use for up to two weeks. Guests are given access to a network independent from campus resources, providing guests with convenient Wi-Fi access to surf the web and check their mail while on campus.
