Will some visitors still need guest accounts?
You will still need to create or request a guest account for visitors who need to sign into university-owned computers in our computer labs, classrooms, and offices. The Public Wi-Fi is for guests who only need to connect a personal smartphone, tablet, or laptop to the Internet.
Can WWU faculty, staff, and students use Public Wi-Fi?
Students, faculty, and staff should use their WWU universal account to sign into WWUwireless-Secure, which is faster and more secure than Public Wi-Fi.
I'm a visitor and I'm having problems connecting, or reconnecting, to WWUwireless-Guest. What should I do?
- Try turning off Wi-Fi on your device and then turning it back on again.
- If restarting Wi-Fi does not work, try forgetting/removing the network from your device and then adding it again.
- Restarting the device, especially if it's a laptop, may help. You can also contact the Help Desk at 360-650-3333 or stop by Haggard Hall 123 during our full service hours for assistance.
