Wireless Network

Guest WiFi


Please review our procedures below for requesting WiFi access for your guests on campus.  If you have any questions, please contact the Help Desk at (252) 335-3532.



If a department requires access to Wi-Fi for on-campus vendors or visitors, they must submit a Helpdesk ticket for this request at least 7 days prior to the date.  The person submitting the requests must assume full responsibility for vetting their users for security purposes.  Up to 20 individual accounts may have access to the Viking (Guest) Wi-Fi.  These accounts will be on a ”secure” network and will be visible to IT Services staff.

Please submit a Helpdesk Request with the following information included in the comments area:

First Name
Last Name
Email address
Phone number
ECSU host
Reason for visit
Visit schedule



We are able to provide “unsecured” access to a group of users when a department or building requires WiFi access for guests.  For major events and engagements on campus, a Helpdesk ticket must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior for preparations and testing.  The request should include the start and stop date and time of the event, or duration that guest wireless access is needed.  DIT will provide the access for up to 1 hour prior and 1 hour after the scheduled event.
