Wireless Connectivity (Campus Guests)


HSU operates two types of wireless network - one for staff, faculty, and students, and one for campus visitors. This page describes the HSUGuest network, which is designed for campus visitors, including parents, prospective students, conference and meeting attendees, and visiting faculty and administrators.

Consultants and contractors working on campus projects are provided with an HSU User Name and Password by their sponsoring department; these users may use the HSUGuest network but will find HSUWireless-Secure more useful. CSU auditors and other legal or compliance professionals are required to use Trusted Guest accounts. Learn more about how to connect using the HSUSecure-Wireless network

Who's it for?
Prospective Students

System Configuration

Visiting parents and prospective students, as well as individuals attending meetings and conferences on the HSU campus, can set up their own accounts on the HSUGuest network. This is accomplished simply by selecting this option from the available options shown on their device and completing a short registration form. A cellphone with a US or Canadian 10-digit number is required in order to receive the access credentials via text message. 

Visiting faculty and administrators from other CSU campuses will be provided with HSU Guest account credentials by the guest account administrator in their sponsoring department.

Additional Information

Self-registered guest accounts are valid for 15 days total. This can be extended on request by applying in person at the Technology Help Desk in Library 101.
