Wireless Access for Southeast Visitors
Every day, Southeast hosts many visitors and guests who need wireless access. They include:
Two types of wireless access are available, depending who you are and where on campus you are visiting:
SoutheastGuest Wireless Access
With the Southeast Guest network, you can use the university’s wireless network to access the Internet while on-campus. The Southeast Guest network is intended for the average Southeast visitor – not visitors who need access to special applications. The Southeast Guest network offers limited bandwidth, and access is granted for up to 7 consecutive days.
This network is separate from the University’s network.
For a list of locations where SoutheastGuest is currently available see below
The SoutheastGuest network is currently available in the following buildings:
Sponsored Guests to Southeast
If you have unique access requirements, you may want to consider using the Sponsored Guest wireless network. You will first need a current Southeast faculty, or staff member, to sponsor a wireless guest account for you A sponsor is usually someone from a department on campus who has invited the guest or is responsible for them during their stay.
Guest WiFi Access for Individuals
Individual Guest Wi-Fi accounts can be setup and activated for up to 10 consecutive days. (Anything longer than 10 days requires special arrangements).
Guests of the university sometimes reside on campus during their visit, many do not. Guest Wi-Fi accounts are available whether the guests stay on campus or not.
Sponsors interested in requesting Wi-Fi access for their guests should contact the IT Help Desk, at least one business day in advance, and be prepared to provide the following information:
Sponsors can either e-mail the Help Desk at email@example.com or fill out this form .
After this information is provided, the guest’s user information will be generated, and this will be communicated to the university sponsor via email.
Guest Wi-Fi Accounts for Groups
If you are hosting a group of people that will need Wi-Fi access, please contact the Help Desk (573.651.4357 or firstname.lastname@example.org) with the following details:
Requests for group accounts need to be submitted at least one week in advance of the event. IT reserves the right to reject requests submitted less than seven (7) days from the event.
Suggested Next Steps for Sponsor Prior to the Guest(s) Arrival
It is best if the sponsor communicates the account information to guest(s) along with instructions prior to their arrival. The connection process does require some user intervention, it might be helpful for the sponsor to ask the guest(s) 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 using Guest Wi-Fi accounts. These instructions may be found at .
If for some reason, the guests’ plans change, the Help Desk should be notified immediately so the account can be disabled or re-enabled for the appropriate amount of time.
Instructions for popular device platforms may be found below
If you are using a different device while on campus, contact the IT Help Desk for assistance at 573-651-4357 (Ext 4357 from Campus phones).
The IT Help Desk is open 24/7 weekdays and during select hours weekends.
