Campus Visitors

As a visitor to the University of Arizona, there are a couple of ways you can gain access to the campus wireless network. 
UAGuest is a FREE unsecured wireless network provided for campus visitors and requires authentication with a user name and password. Campus visitors can select UAGuest from the wireless options on their device, and establish an account valid for five (5) days by entering their name and cell phone number. After five (5) days, guests will need to establish a new account.  UAGuest and UAPublic wireless networks will remain available until May 22, 2016, at which time UAGuest will replace UAPublic.

  • To create an account, click on “Create Account” at the bottom of the webpage.
  • Enter your name and cell phone number (use hyphens ex. XXX-XXX-XXXX).
  • You will receive a text message containing your assigned username and password. 
  • Go back to your UAGuest Welcome page and enter your assigned username and password.

Eduroam is a free and secure global wireless access service for the Research & Education sector. It is currently available at about 3,500 institutions worldwide. Faculty, students, and staff of research institutions and organizations that participate in Eduroam will be able to log in to wireless at the University of Arizona using the credentials provided to them by their home institution.
If you are a visitor from an institution in the eduroam consortium, log in to the eduroam wireless network rather than UAGuest in order to have a secure connection. Ask your institution's IT support for Eduroam login information. For more information about Eduroam, visit the UITS Eduroam webpage.

UAPublic is a FREE unsecured wireless network provided as a public service for those without official UA sponsorship or affiliation. It is available in most campus public spaces.  Most devices will automatically connect to UA Public. Effective May 22, 2016, UAGuest will replace UAPublic for campus visitors.

DCC Account Sponsorship
The Designated Campus Colleague (DCC) accounts are available for those individuals not represented by an official record in the UAccess employee or student systems and who may require temporary computing privileges as deemed necessary by an affiliated University of Arizona department, school, or college. DCC's are grouped into one of three categories: affiliate, associates, volunteers or interns.
