If you're visiting the University of Otago and only require internet access you can use the UO_Guest network, which is available at all locations where the University wireless networks are provided:

  1. Select the UO_Guest network from the list of available networks on your device. A webpage should open automatically with the login screen. If it doesn't, open a web browser manually and the page should open.
  2. At the login screen, click on the Don't have an account? link and follow the prompts to create a new account. If you already have an existing UO_Guest account, enter your login details here.
  3. After you have registered, you will be presented with a summary page. This includes the username you entered and a randomly generated password. It is a good idea to write these details down or take a screenshot for future reference. The details will also be emailed to the email address you provided. Once you have recorded the details, click the Sign On button.
  4. You are required to read and accept the University network regulations. You will be unable to access the internet until this is done.

    After you click Accept you will be redirected to the ITS Visitor Network Access page, and you should now be able to access the internet.

A UO_Guest account provides access to the internet for up to:

  • Two weeks (14 days)
  • 5GB per day
  • Two devices at a time.

Your account will expire after two weeks from creation or seven consecutive days of no activity. You can then create a new one if needed.

If your device has logged in to another University of Otago network using a University username (staff, student, or external), you will not be able to access the UO_Guest network on that device.
