Creating Guest Accounts

Issue/Question

How do I get a guest account for internet access and/or Blackboard?

Environment

  • Faculty
  • Staff

Cause

Guest accounts allow access to open computer labs, classrooms, conference rooms, and (optionally) Blackboard. Guests who only need internet access should connect to the WKU-GUEST wireless network, which does not require an account. Faculty and Staff can create up to 20 guest accounts for use with WKU systems.
