Guest Wireless Service

The guest wireless service provides campus guests with basic network access for web, email, and remote log in services.

  2. Log in with your Andrew userID and password.
  3. Select Manage in the Event Manager box.
  4. Click Add Event.
  5. Complete the fields and click Add Event.
    Note: The start and end dates define the span for the access code (90 days max).
  6. You will be redirected to a list of your events. This displays the access code for each event.
  7. Distribute the access code and connection instructions [PDF] to event attendees.
