Carnegie Mellon University

Tech Quick Start for Visitors

Welcome to Carnegie Mellon University! Use this page during your visit to learn how to access computing resources available to you. If you can’t find what you need, visit Help and Support.

Note: Visitors should work with a sponsor or host from the university to gain access to computing resources.

Short-Term Visitors

If you’re on campus for a short time to tour or attend an event or class, a faculty or staff host can provide you access to the guest wireless network for email and web browsing.

If you’re visiting from another university and do not have a host, you may also consider connecting to the Eduroam network.

Long-Term Visitors

If you’re on campus for a longer period of time (generally five or more months), a faculty or staff host may grant you a sponsored account so that you can access additional resources.
