IT Public Computing Tips

Guest Accounts

Skidmore College maintains a private network. Therefore, only people with a relationship to Skidmore College may use our Ethernet and wireless network. Members of the community at large, with no relationship with the college, may not enter campus and use the network.

However, we do have short term guest accounts for those with a relationship to the college. These include such categories of guests as alumni, students' family members, an employee's family member, visiting lecturers, visiting performers, visiting artists, conference attendees, and vendors.

Please contact the help desk to request a guest account. Only a few simple pieces of information are necessary for us to generate a guest username and password.
