Visitor Computing Accounts - Details and how to apply.

What is a visitor computing account?
 
A visitor account allows temporary computing access and is issued to short-term guests of the University. The account enables the visitor to get basic access to computing services such as:

   - WiFi through our EDUROAM network
   - Computers within Open Access areas.
 
How long can a visitor have a computing account for?

A visitor account can be issued for a maximum of two weeks. If the user requires longer-term access, a discretionary account may be more suitable.

How do I apply?

If a visitor requires a temporary account, their host (i.e. the person they’re visiting) should contact the Service Desk with the following information.
  • Name of visitor.
  • Duration of stay.
  • Purpose of visit.
  • Visitor’s contact details.

You can contact the Service Desk on 01752 588588, or raise a 'New visitor account' request via http://ITselfservice.plymouth.ac.uk
