Guest Wi-Fi Access
NOTE: This applies to single or a small number of guests. This DOES NOT apply to guest access for large meetings, workshops or conferences.
Individual Guest Wi-Fi accounts can be setup for periods of 1 – 10 days. (Anything longer than 10 days require special arrangements).
Guest Wi-Fi accounts should be requested by a full-time employee of Southeast Missouri State University. For the purpose of this document, this person will be referred to as the sponsor. A sponsor is usually someone from a department on campus who has invited the guest or is responsible for them during their stay.
Guests of the university, sometimes reside on campus during their visit, many do not. Guest Wi-Fi accounts are available whether the guest(s) stay on campus or not.
Information Required to Request Guest Wi-Fi Access
Sponsors interested in requesting Wi-Fi access for their guests should contact the DoIT Help Desk, at least one business day in advance, and be prepared to provide the following information:
After this information is provided, the guest’s user information will be generated, and this will be communicated to the sponsor via email.
Suggested Next Steps for Sponsor Prior to the Guest Arrival
The sponsor will need to communicate the account information to guest upon (or prior to) arrival.
Because the connection process does require some user intervention, it might be helpful for the sponsor to ask the guest what types of devices they are planning to connect while on campus. The Department of Information Technology provides step-by-step instructions for connecting most popular devices to the campus Wi-Fi. These instructions can be made available to the guest upon their arrival.
If for some reason, the guest’s plans change, the Help Desk should be notified immediately so the account can be disabled or re-enabled for the appropriate amount of time.

If you are visiting Southeast as a presenter, or to attend a meeting, chances are you will need to access the Internet on campus. With this in mind, the Southeast IT Department allows the use of guest wireless (WiFi) accounts.
The department you are working with can request a guest account on your behalf that can be used for periods of 1 to 10 consecutive days. The account information will be provided to you upon your arrival on campus.
Your guest account will permit you to connect securely to our WiFi network and access the Internet. It will consist of a SE Key (username) and password.
The process involves connecting your device to the Southeast wireless network and registering the device with your guest account. Once the device is registered it will connect to the Southeast wireless network automatically once a signal is detected.
We’ve provided instructions for the most common devices below:
