Sponsor a Guest on the Network


The College of Wooster offers two ways for guests to connect to the internet.  Visitors can receive access to basic, family-friendly websites such as access to email services, Facebook, YouTube, travel booking services, etc, simply by connecting to the Start Here network.  Once a browser is launched, visitors will be redirected to a College of Wooster landing page and can select Option 3 to connect.  A username and password are not required to access the internet using this method.  More information about how to connect can be found here.

A second option is available for Guests who may need access to College resources on the network and all content on the internet. Guests can be sponsored by a member of the College of Wooster faculty and staff.  In this case, the sponsor of the guest will need to generate a user id and password.
