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 IT Self Service.
