Self-service Guest Wireless (non-sponsored)

Intended for short-term 'day' visitors with standard Internet access requirements, self-service non-sponsored guest wireless is a free service designed to accommodate most users, including parents, friends, and prospective students.

To register: connect to the VirginiaTech wireless network on your device and open a web browser. The Welcome to Virginia Tech landing page should open automatically. Select Guest and follow the prompts. After completing the registration form, you will receive an SMS text with your login credentials.

Sponsored Guest Accounts

University visitors, such as contractors, conference attendees, and vendors who may require longer access than the 9 hours provided by non-sponsored accounts can have a sponsored account provided by a sponsoring department. If you require longer-term service, please consult with your university contact to discuss a sponsored guest account.
