Guest Services

This page contains information about network access services available to campus guests who have received short-term guest accounts from a student, staff, or faculty member.

Create short-term accounts Log in to create accounts

All students, faculty, and staff can create short-term network guest accounts.

Guests and visitors' guide

Several network and computer lab access options are available to campus guests and visitors. Your network and lab access options can vary depending on the length of your stay.

Not sure which access options will apply to you? See the Guide for Guests and Visitors to determine if you are considered a campus guest or a visitor, and whether your stay is defined as short-term or long-term.

University hosts and sponsors' guide

Hosts and departments can provide network and computer lab access for their guests. Several types of short-term guest accounts are available, but if your guest will be staying more than a month, he or she should use a guest NetID rather than a short-term guest account.
