Wireless Access for Alumni, Conferences and Guests

Alumni, visitors and/or guests have two options for obtaining wireless Internet access while on campus.

Lehigh Guest Network

Lehigh University maintains a guest wireless network for short-duration use by visitors to the University. The guest network speed is limited to 56k which will allow for email checking, web browsing and other low bandwidth tasks. The guest network is open and requires no authentication or security keys to connect to.

Lehigh guest is available in most buildings on campus. Note, since the guest network is open there is no secured connection, users should take proper precautions when using it.

Accessing Lehigh Wireless with a Guest Account

Lehigh wireless is a high-speed, secured wireless network available throughout campus. In order to connect to Lehigh wireless all users need to authenticate using a Lehigh userID and password. Lehigh affiliates and guests can obtain a temporary guest account which will allow access to Lehigh wireless and public site computers.

Obtaining a guest account – Guest accounts require sponsorship by a Lehigh University faculty or staff member. The sponsor must complete the online Request a Computing Account Form. Select Temporary Visitor as the Account Type and indicate the guest's name, address, email address and the reason for the request. By sponsoring a guest, the employee is accepting the responsibility for the guest's use of the network resources, in accordance with the Lehigh University Policies on the Use of Computer Systems and Facilities and to state and federal laws.
