EMU-Open-Guest Wireless Network

The EMU-OPEN-GUEST network is available to guests visiting the EMU campus. Guests may self-register to access the EMU-OPEN-GUEST network. Self-registration provides guests with network access for up to 24 hours, and guests may repeat the self-registration process for additional access as needed. Although faculty, staff and students are permitted to use the guest WiFi network, we recommend they use EMU-Wireless-Secure for better security.
