Guest Wireless Access with UNLV-Sponsored

Campus guests can create an account to receive Internet access on the UNLV-Sponsored wireless network. Guests will use this option if they don't have access to eduroam from another institution.

Guest Access is Limited

Guest Access is only intended for temporary use and is limited.

  • Guests receive 10, 3-day passes for wireless access per year
  • A pass is activated as soon as a device on your account connects to UNLV-Sponsored
  • An activated pass is valid for 72 hours. You may connect multiple devices using the same account.
  • Your next pass will automatically activate if a device on your account connects to UNLV-Sponsored after the previous pass has expired.
  • You will receive an email each time a new pass is activated.

UNLV Students, Faculty, and Staff should connect to eduroam for unlimited access.

Guests who are working with a UNLV department can request long-term access though their department contact.
