About Guest Access

A guest to UW-Whitewater is an individual visiting campus for a limited period of time who is provided limited access to campus resources as a matter of convenience. Those who have a contractual relationship with the University, or who require more comprehensive access to campus resources are not covered by this process.

Guests to UW-Whitewater may access the campus wireless network, General Access Lab computers and lab printing using a special guest account. All guests to UW-Whitewater network resources must abide by the UW-W Network Usage Policy and Guest Access Policy.
