This depends on how long your visitor will be here and what they need access to.

If your visitor uses eduroam Wi-Fi at their home institution, they will also be able to use it here.

If your visitor doesn't have access to eduroam, you can create a GUvisitor Wi-Fi account for them via the MyGlasgow Staff Portal. 

You will need to provide the following details:

  • The start and end dates of the visit
  • Your visitor's name and email address
  • The organisation your guest will be visiting from

As early as possible, contact Human Resources to arrange for your visitor to have affiliate status.

Once their affiliate status is confirmed, your visitor can get a staff ID card, and you can make a helpdesk call to arrange access to any IT and campus facilities they require.


Delegates attending a conference

If the conference was organised through UofG Conferences and Events Delegate Registration Service, they will issue the delegates with IT and Wi-Fi accesses as appropriate.

You will need to provide the following details:

  • Your name and department
  • The start and end dates of the conference
  • Your delegates' names and email addresses
  • The organisation(s) your delegates are coming from
