UARK Guest Wi-Fi

UARK Guest Wi-Fi does not require setup and is an unsecured guest network that allows access to the web, but blocks other services such as printing and mapping a drive. To access UARK Guest Wi-Fi, choose it from the list of available networks, open your web browser and enter any valid email address (for example, firstname.lastname@example.org).

IT Services prohibits the use of on-campus wireless routers by students, faculty and staff. Wireless routers can inhibit traffic flow through the university network, negatively impacting the quality of internet access for other users sharing the same local network.
