Visitors to the University of Chicago have several options for wireless network access.
Sponsored Guest access
Any University full-time Faculty or Staff can create accounts to create the "uchicago-guest" wireless network. The accounts can be extended for up to two weeks of access. There are some limitations though.
Only the uchicago-guest wireless network is available to these accounts.
- uchicago-guest is segregated from the main campus network. Some resources may be unavilable to devices on this network.
- Connections to uchicago-guest will time out after 8 hours of use, requireing re-authentication.
- uchicago-guest traffic is not encrypted.
- Sponsored guest accounts are granted no rights to other University resources aside from the uchicago-guest wireless network.
IT Services provides a number of web pages for Sponsors and Guests describing the uchicago-guest network and how to access it.
