The Guest NetID service is intended for people who are guests of campus, such as conference attendees and visiting professors who are not enrolling as professors or students at the University.

Guest NetIDs can only access Wireless UWNet and WiscVPN. A Guest NetID does not grant access to the portal, calendar, email, or other NetID accessible utilities. It will last for a maximum of 31 days for Union Members, 24 hours for non-Union members, and is not renewable.

If you are visiting campus and would like a Guest NetID, talk to the department or coordinator responsible for your stay.

Guest NetIDs can be issued by any University employee with a valid UDDS. The employee must put an expiration date on the Guest NetID when creating it. Once the account expires, it cannot be re-issued. If a guest needs to have their access extended, their host can create a new Guest NetID. There is no charge for this service.
