Guest Access (GuestNet)

GuestNet provides an easy way for visitors to UVM to gain access to wireless internet service, computer labs and SharePoint based web services.

Visitors to UVM's campus may use the UVM Guest wireless network either by self-registering via SMS text message or sponsorship by a current UVM student, faculty or staff member, or department.

This is an open network and users must take appropriate precautions to protect their own devices and their own communications, if those communications are sensitive.


  • Wireless network access without the need of a UVM NetID
