Wireless: Request a LSU NetGuest Account


Guest Accounts for Wireless Connectivity

There are varying reasons for creating a LSU NetGuest Account.  Any member of the LSU Faculty or Staff may request a NetGuest Account in order for a campus visitor to be able to access the LSU guest wireless network from their own equipment.

PLEASE NOTE:

  • One wireless username and password can be used for multiple individuals within a single group.
  • If the creator of the NetGuest account forgets or loses the password, he or she must recreate a new NetGuest account.
