Access is not intended for the general public, POS vendors or students from other universities. Student attending Laurier or registered in a double degree program should use their MyLaurier account to access Laurier Wi-FI or Laurier Wireless.
Guests must be sponsored by a Laurier faculty member, a Laurier staff member, or a member of the WLUSU executive.
The sponsor will be in part responsible to ensure that the guest understands their responsibilities and obligations both legal and regarding university policy while using Laurier IT services.
The underlying purpose of all resources at Laurier is that every effort should be made to ensure that all resources are used for the primary objective of teaching, learning, research and the support of those efforts.
Guest wireless accounts are only issued for 3 days.
