Guests can access Beloit College's guest wireless network by connecting to BCGuest and then opening a browser. The browser will be redirected to an authentication portal where guests can self-register and obtain a password via SMS text or email. Access is granted for 24 hours, after which registration must be completed again.
If a guest is staying for an extended period of time, needs wired access, or needs access to additional college resources, they can request a full guest account from IT which will allow them to connect to our secure wireless network (BCNet) or to the wired network. Information on connecting to BCNet is available in our full Wireless Connectivity article.
Guests are responsible for adhering to college policies and practice. The college reserves the right to block or suspend network access to vulnerable or infected computers to preserve the integrity of network operations. Please refer to the college's Ethical Use of Computing and Information Resources and Privileges policy for more information.
If you need to manually register a device on the BCGuest network, please follow the instructions on the Registering Your Computer/Device page.
