Self-service guest wireless network pilot now available

A pilot of a new WiFi network that allows visitors at the University of Georgia to access a dedicated guest wireless network is now available.

Once on campus, visitors may use their valid personal email address to set up an account that gives them access to the new UGA-Visitors WiFi network.

A username and temporary password will be emailed to the visitor, who will then change the password to their choice.

The pilot is available until Aug. 1.

A survey seeking feedback from users of the new guest wireless network is at https://tinyurl.com/y8fczmso.

This new guest wireless network is intended to allow visitors to onboard themselves to a dedicated guest wireless network without having to contact the EITS Help Desk for a username and password.

Guest accounts on the UGA-Visitors WiFi network will be valid for five days. After that time, visitors can register again.

Details and instructions are available at wifi.uga.edu.

The existing guest wireless network, Welcome to UGA, is also available. Visitors must call the EITS Help Desk at 706-542-3106 to get a username and password to access the Welcome to UGA guest wireless network.

UGA students, faculty and staff with a valid MyID should use the PAWS-Secure or eduroam wireless networks. Guest wireless networks provide basic Internet access and limit access to certain UGA-provided resources.
