UGentGuest network is wireless internet especially for visitors who are not affiliated with institutions participating in the Eduroam project and who cannot obtain a visitor's pass.
Members of the UGent staff can after one-time approval (for this purpose contact NetAdmin@UGent.be) create guest accounts for guests by using the web application at https://www.guests.UGent.be/ .
The UGentGuest access is only for a limited period and for as long as the guest stays at the university.
The UGentGuest account can be used immediately or can be requested in advance.
How to connect?
In the list of wireless networks you select UGentGuest. Once you start browsing, you come to the wireless login page, where the obtained guest user name and password must be specified. Only after this authentication you have wireless Internet access.
Please note that data traffic over a guest account will not be encrypted.
To protect personal data, you can best use encrypted connections, such as http, imaps, ssh etc. or a VPN connection to your own company or institution.
