Wireless Access for Visitors
If you are a UW faculty or staff member, you can assign temporary UW NetIDs to visitors for the purpose of accessing the UW's wireless networks.
- Temporary UW NetIDs are only for people who do not have permanent UW NetIDs and will only need access for a short period of time (up to 3 months).
- For people who need longer term access or access to UW NetID services other than wireless, you may sponsor the creation of a permanent personal UW NetID.
- When you assign a temporary UW NetID to an individual or group, you are agreeing to inform those individuals about the ethical use of computers and networks.
- Before you use this service, you should read and understand your support roles and responsibilities.
There are two types of temporary UW NetIDs you can assign:
Personal Temporary UW NetID - A UW
NetID that is assigned to a single person for wireless
access. Examples: A visiting professor, a visting
vendor giving a demo, a person taking a class for two
Shared Temporary UW NetID - A UW NetID
that is assigned to a specific group of people for a
short time. Examples: Wireless access for conferences,
a specific meeting scheduled for non-UW people
requiring wireless access.
