Guest Accounts


Guest Accounts are temporary accounts provided to University guests, which allow access to the network and/or computer labs, and are intended for short-term use only. An individual or department sponsor can create up to two guest accounts for their visitors, which are valid for three days. The Engineering IT Guest Accounts Service Manager can also create accounts in bulk, which may have a duration greater than three days.

If more accounts are required, the user will be put in touch with the Service Manager, who can create accounts in bulk. As well, if the user or a guest has difficulty using the guest accounts, they can contact Engineering IT for further assistance.
