Guest Wireless

Instant wireless access now available to campus guests

Starting January 10th 2014, guests making short (under 15 days) visits to campus no longer need to go to the Technology Help Desk to arrange for Internet access while they're on campus. Just like going online in a coffee shop or an airport, HSU wireless access is now provided free of charge. Just click on the HSUGuest wireless network and complete the short form.

 

In another step towards improved customer service at HSU, guests making short (under 15 days) visits to campus can now get immediate access to the HSU campus wireless network. Read more about guest wireless self-registration.

Guest Wireless Access

HSU provides both short and long-term campus guests with Internet access via wireless networks without the need to install the usual policy key software. While this level of access is more limited than the full policy-based setup, it does allow guest users to gain access to the Internet quickly and keeps our campus network more secure.

Wireless :: Regular Wireless Access Overview

HSU's regular wireless is similar to the public wifi services at airports and coffee shops. Speed and performance are generally good, but users will not be able to access certain areas of the HSU wired network, such as departmental fileshares and wired printers, without the use of a VPN connection.
