Wireless Network Guest Access


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

  • have a faculty or staff member sponsor the guest(s), a process known as sponsoring a guest;
  • log in using "eduroam" (available to guests from eduroam-participating institutions), or
  • log in using your Oregon State or Portland State credentials

How to Use eduroam

If you are from 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 Sponsorship Works

A faculty or staff member creates a guest's sponsorship, and the system generates a temporary password. The sponsor gives the password to the guest. The guest logs in, provides important contact information and sets a new password.

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

For details of who is eligible to act as a sponsor and who is eligible to be sponsored, see the Wireless Network Guest Access Policy. All guests are responsible for following our Acceptable Use Policy.
