Guest Wireless Access

Alumni Guest


USD provides guest wireless access to campus visitors, conferences, vendors, and private citizens. 

As of June 2014, the guest wireless promotional codes and fees have been temporarily suspended. Currently guests of the university do not need to pay, and do not need a password in order to access the limited wireless network.


Previously, sponsored groups of the University were given approved promotional codes to create a username and password. Unsponsored guests of the University paid fees in order to create a username and password that allowed them access to the internet on the "usdguest" network. This process has been suspended until further notice.
