Guest Network Accounts

Access While on Campus

Guest Network Accounts

Want to try out our wireless network? Do you need to get access to your computer system at another site? Network access for a visit might be accommodated by a guest account. Below are descriptions of the two types of guest accounts that we offer.

Short-term Guest Accounts

If you are visiting our campus and want access to network resources your host can create a guest account. Guest accounts require only a few minutes to setup and can be assigned for a limited period of time (1 day to 2 weeks).

Your account will allow you access to the Internet through our campus computers in the library and computing labs, which are equipped with our standard software configuration. You may also access our wireless network on your own computer. Your sponsor might also choose to assign equipment within a particular area for your use.

Guest accounts expire at the end of the period set by your host when the account is created. If you need to extend this period of time, please have your host contact the Help Desk.

To set up your account, your host should follow the instructions on the Sponsor a Guest Account page.

Long-term Guest Accounts

Community affiliates, such as scholars, lecturers, recruiters, contractors and vendors, are eligible for long-term guest accounts. The Denison staff or faculty member sponsoring your visit(s) is responsible for determining and accommodating any network access you may need. Your host should contact the Help Desk to request a long-term guest account at least <em>two weeks</em> in advance of your arrival.

For more help, contact the Help Desk at helpdesk@denison.edu or x6395.
