If you anticipate visiting the University of Connecticut and require access to the Internet or other network services, please be aware of the following two options:
Option 1 : Walk-In Access
Walk-In guests who do not have a sponsor from the University (e.g. town residents, visiting parents, etc.) must visit one of the ID centers located around campus. The ID centers are located at:
At each of these locations is a kiosk computer that has access to the walk-in registration application, located at http://guestreg.uconn.edu. The guest should complete the web form (which requests his/her name, address, and a password for the guest account) and then contact a staff member at that ID center in order to activate the account. The walk-in guest must present identification that corresponds to the information he/she provided on the web form in order for the guest account to be activated.
Option 2 : Sponsored Access
If you are visiting the University for a conference or other organized event, you should contact the event sponsor and see if sponsored network access exists for the event. University staff and faculty can sponsor an event and invite the attendees via e-mail prior to the event date. The invited attendees can then register in advance to obtain their guest credentials so there is no need to visit a kiosk location upon arriving on campus. Additionally, sponsored access can be granted for much longer periods of time than walk-in access. The credentials obtained via sponsored access will also work for the wired and wireless networks with your own PC or laptop.
