Do I need a visitor account to access wireless?

No, the visitor account will only allow you to access the wired network.  You can access the visitor wireless without an account and without using quota.  For information on this, please visit the ITS website.


How do I get an application?

If you're attending a conference at UQ, your conference organiser/s may have pre-arranged for applications to be issued at the conference. Speak to your conference organiser/s to find out, otherwise, just visit Client Services on campus (building 42, ground level).


Are you a conference coordinator, wishing to purchase visitor accounts in bulk?

If you wish to obtain a bulk quantity of Visitor Internet accounts, please email UQconnect for details.  The accounts will be setup and then you then issue these to the conference delegates as needed.
