Guest Access to Wireless Network Now Available
ITS is making improvements to the U of S wireless network that allows guests to use it when visiting the University. Two types of guest access are available—one for invited guests such as visiting researchers or instructors and conference attendees, and one for members of the general public.
Invited guests will be able to access the U of S wireless network with a guest ID for up to 14 days. The special guest ID (username) and password is provided by an employee who has requested access on their behalf. Conference attendees can be provided access to the wireless network with a special guest ID requested by the conference organizer. Conference IDs can also be used for up to 14 days.
Members of the public who visit the University will also be able to use the U of S wireless network. Access is available to the public as part of the Government of Saskatchewan's Information Technology Office (ITO) initiative to make WiFi available to the public. Details of the government’s initiative are available at http://www.gov.sk.ca/news?newsId=71f283b3-f8f8-44c4-b0d6-693921262e29.
Initially, this access is only available in a limited number of locations on campus. Over the next few months, the number of locations where guest access to the wireless network is available will be expanded to include all University locations that have wireless access.
More information on wireless guest access is available in the networks section of the ITS website.
