UT Health Science Center Wireless Network Guest Account Information
Wireless Network Guest Accounts are offered to UT Health Science Center guests on a short term basis .
Description: Guest user access to the UT Health Science Center wireless network is intended for short term access back to a guest's home network with support for normal business applications (email, file shares, etc.) and for restricted Internet access (Web). These guest accounts will NOT be allowed to access any protected HSC network resources. *Wireless Services may not be available in all locations.
Sponsored Group Requirement: Any UT Health Science Center department or division can sponsor guest accounts for any official UT Health Science Center event. The sponsoring group must take the responsiblity of informing the guest users of UT Health Science Center network access policies and ethical use. The guest list is limited to 25 names per event period per wireless coverage area. The reason for this restriction is the limited resources in most of the wireless coverage areas. The maximum guest account life is normally one week. If you need to support more than the 25 guests per event or events longer than one week in duration, please contact Information Client Support Services (IMCSS) at 210-567-7777 for options. Also, there exists the possibility that other events may have the need for the same wireless resources as your requested event. In this case, IMCSS will limit the use by event on a "first come, first serve" basis.
When the guest accounts have been processed, the Contact Person will receive e-mail with an attached file that can be printed and distributed to the guest users.
