Information for Long-Term Guests
This page contains information for long-term guests and visitors to campus (i.e. people who are visiting for a month or more)
What is a long-term guest NetID?
A long-term guest NetID provides guests who will be on campus for at least one month (at the request of an academic department or unit) access to certain University resources, such as networking and library resources, and allows them to request an optional Exchange email account.
Sponsoring departments or units can click here to learn more about requesting a long-term guest NetID and password.
Long-term guest NetIDs and passwords may be requested of Technology Services. Guest NetIDs provide:
- A unique NetID and NetID password
- Encryption-secured IllinoisNet Wireless, Walkup, and Campus VPN access to the campus network
Once your long-term guest NetID is created, you can access ICS labs and other services within 24 hours.
Note: You must set passwords and/or sign up for these services using the links below.
Technology Services Instructional Computing Services (ICS) labs
The Technology Services Instructional Computing Services (ICS) labs are available in several locations around campus.
Set a password at the Password Manager, and you will be able to access the ICS computers.
Faculty, staff, and graduate students: Microsoft Exchange
If your sponsoring department has arranged for you to have a Microsoft Exchange account for email and calendaring services, you will need to set a NetID Password in order to access your mailbox. You can set your NetID password at the Password Manager.
Undergraduate students: Google Apps @ Illinois
Undergraduate students are usually not eligible for Microsoft Exchange accounts unless they are also student employees. Most undergraduate students are eligible for Google Apps @ Illinois accounts.
For additional assistance with guest NetIDs, contact the Technology Services Help Desk at (217) 244-7000 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
