Wireless: Request a LSU NetGuest Account

Guest Accounts for Wireless Connectivity

An LSU NetGuest account is required to provide guests on LSU campus with internet access via Guest Wireless. The NetGuest account does not provide access to any other campus resource.  Any full-time member of the LSU Faculty or Staff may request a NetGuest Account in order for a campus visitor to be able to access the LSU guest wireless network from their own equipment.
