Provide Guests With Internet Access Using Wireless Guest Services

Posted on: October 23rd, 2012 by

Today, University of Mississippi (UM) students, staff and faculty can gain internet access by using the UM wireless network.  Using a UM WebID and corresponding password, UM wireless service is available at various locations on our Oxford and regional campuses.  Further, parents visiting one of our campuses may also gain UM wireless access, provided they have a parent WebID.

But what about our guests on campus? Fortunately our Network Management group within the Office of Information Technology (IT) have provided a self-service solution named UM Wireless Guest Services.   This service request is driven by an individual with an active UM WebID.   The individual simply signs in, completes the required information and the guest account is created immediately.   Do you need to provide access to multiple guests for a special event?  No problem.   While active, a guest WebID can be used by multiple people for UM wireless access.

If you have questions, please contact the IT Helpdesk at 662-915-5222 or  They are available from 8 AM – 5 PM, Monday through Friday.
