What about visiting guests?

Eduroam is available campus wide and provides per-user, per-session encrypted network access for visitors from participating institutions, without the need to gain guest credentials on arrival to an eduroam enabled location.  Please visit http://webs.purduecal.edu/infosvcs/get-connected/eduroam/ for additional information on eduroam.

If you have guests visiting the University from a non-eduroam participating institution that need wireless network access, you may request an account for them.
