Alumni/Guest/Conference Access

In order to successfully connect to Lehigh's wireless network, all users need to authenticate using their Lehigh userID and password. The network verifies user credentials via Active Directory(AD) (the system that also allows access to public sites).

Alumni / Guests

Open "lehigh-guest" Wireless Network

Any guest or visitor can access Lehigh's unrestricted guest network: lehigh-guest. This network does not require any type of account or login. This network is available throughout the majority of campus. To access lehigh-guest, simply select it from the list of wireless networks shown on your device.

Guest Accounts

Lehigh University affiliates and visitors can also obtain a temporary guest account which allows access to the Lehigh wireless network and to the public site computers. The account is valid for a period of seven days.

Obtaining a Guest Account

Guest Accounts require sponsorship by a Lehigh University faculty or staff member. The sponsor must complete the online Request a Computing Account Form. Select Temporary Guest as the Account Type and indicate the guest's name, address, email address and the reason for the request. By sponsoring a guest, the employee is accepting the responsibility for the guest's use of the network resources, in accordance with the Lehigh University Policies on the Use of Computer Systems and Facilities and to state and federal laws.


Lehigh does provide temporary accounts for conferences; however, the type of access may differ based on the needs and purposes of the conference. If you or your organization are looking to host a conference at Lehigh - in addition to working with Lehigh Conference Services to plan, reserve facilities, and work out other details - contact LTS Client Services at 610-758-3830.
