Guest and Visitor Wireless Access Guidelines

Georgia Tech has a large number of visitors on campus every day. These guidelines exist to assist in deciding who should be given access to the Georgia Tech network and who should use the commercial network.

There are two types of wireless network access for non-GT users on our campus: LAWN guest accounts or the GTvisitor commercial network.

Guest access sponsorship to the LAWN requires an explicit agreement (either written or verbal) between a representative of Georgia Tech and the guest. For example, if a written contract has been executed with a third party contractor to provide a service to Georgia Tech, then guest access for that individual is appropriate. A contract is defined as those that directly serve to support the mission of the Institute. A pending agreement, such as a faculty recruitment visit would also be deemed appropriate for guest access to the LAWN. All other visitors to campus should use the GTvisitor network. It is up to the visitor and their host to determine who should pay for visitor access.
