Guest Network Access

Wired and Wireless Networks

Guests of the College are allowed access to the Internet through a web based registration process. Wireless guest access is available throughout campus (including the residence halls) through the GustavusGuest wireless network (SSID). Guests are not able to register devices on the wired network unless authorized.

Registration Process

To begin registration, connect to the GustavusGuest wireless network, launch a web browser (Firefox, Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Safari). Your web browser will redirect you to a registration page. Follow the prompts. If you are not redirected, please point your web browser to

Troubleshooting Guest Access

Thousands of guests have registered their computers and have used our guest network. Occasionally users need additional help with registration. The Technology Helpline is available to help troubleshoot. Please call the Technology Helpline at 507-933-6111, e-mail at or stop by the First Floor of Olin Hall. The Technology Helpline is only allowed to offer limited support to non-college owned equipment.
