Visitors can now enjoy guest wireless service

Visitors to campus can now enjoy free guest wireless service without having to track down a guest ID. Courtesy of a partnership between ITS and AT&T, the university is now advertising the "attwifi" network across campus.

 ITS was pleased to begin offering this new service in late 2013 as a convenience to campus guests who want to quickly and easily access the Internet with their wireless devices. Using guest wireless requires just two simple steps: select the "attwifi" network from your wireless device, and use a web browser to agree to the terms and conditions.

Guests who need longer-term access to campus resources can get an eduroam guest ID. UI students and employees should use eduroam because it’s a secure wireless network that allows access to university resources, like file shares and printers.
