Wireless Network Guest Access Process

Audience: Faculty/StaffResearcherStudent - GTF 

Guests visiting the University of Oregon can gain access to UO's wireless network and the internet one of three ways: 

  • Register yourself (Self Service Wireless) 

  • Log in using "eduroam" (available to guests with network accounts at Oregon State and other eduroam-participating institutions) 

  • Have a faculty or staff member host an account for you. (This is generally used when a user needs an account for more than 7 contiguous days.   


How to Use Guest Self-Service

  1. Provide the requested information, check the box indicating you accept the terms and conditions (UO's Acceptable Use Policy), and then click Register.

For authorized guests at UO Athletic venues:  Guests must first receive a PIN from an authorized athletics staff member.  Once they have the PIN they can register themselves for access. When at the athletic venue, on their computer or mobile device, they select the "UO Guest-Athletics" wireless network. On the first page that loads, enter the PIN then select "Create an account."

How to Use eduroam 

If you are from Image Oregon State, Image Portland State, or another a participating eduroam institution, you already have access! Select the "eduroam" wireless network and login using your username and password provided by your home institution. For more information, see About the eduroam Wireless Network. 


How Guest Accounts Can Be Created by Campus Hosts 

A faculty or staff member creates a guest's hosted account. The system generates a username and password that the host then shares with the guest. The guest can log in to the "UO Guest" wireless network using that username and password. 

If your guest needs more than internet access, you may be able to sponsor a DuckID account
