Guest Accounts

Individual Guests

An individual guest who is visiting Adelphi University for a short period of time (typically less than a day) and would like access to the wireless network can contact the IT Help Desk in Swirbul Library for assistance. You must present a valid ID; driver’s license or other ID of consequence to be assigned a temporary guest account.

Please note that guest accounts are not available during finals/study hours when the labs and technology resources are exclusively for Adelphi students.  

To print to a library or lab computer from a guest account, you will need to add money to the guest account at the Pcounter station in Swirbul Library.

Groups of Guests

If you are hosting a visiting speaker or group of guests on campus for an event and need access to the Adelphi wireless network, please contact the IT Help Desk to make a special arrangement. A temporary guest account with a higher cap on the number of active users will be provisioned. Event-related accounts must be requested by an Adelphi affiliated employee who is then responsible for disseminating the information to the guest participants of their event.

Please indicate:

  • Date and time of event
  • Location of event
  • Estimated number of people in attendance

If you need an account for a longer term, for a research scholar, lecturer, contractor, vendor, graduate assistant or other visitor, please refer to New User Account Request.
