After reading the instructions below, click here to access the Guest Wireless Account Request form.
LBIS has updated the system used to provide temporary wireless access to Kenyon guests. We’re pleased to note some differences from the prior system:
- Guest wireless accounts can be issued in advance of your guest’s arrival at Kenyon. You can choose the precise date and time the account will become active, up to a year in the future.
- Accounts can now last up to 180 days.
- The guest username and password will no longer be emailed to the sponsor; instead, they will appear immediately after submitting the form.
- Sponsors have the ability to disable and reactivate accounts they have created.
Remember that anyone with a Kenyon network account can issue an account. If a guest you invite to Kenyon wants temporary access to Kenyon’s wireless network, you are the best person to sponsor them. The Kenyon sponsor is responsible for the behavior and actions associated with the guest account, including any violations of Kenyon's Acceptable Use Policy.
If you have any questions about guest accounts after reading the documentation below, please contact Helpline at x5700.
