Effective Wednesday, March 20, UMD-Guest wireless service is restricted to web-only access of non-authenticated services. Users on UMD-Guest wireless will no longer be able to access any University services that require you to authenticate with your University Internet ID and password. This includes:
- Google Apps (Gmail, Calendar, Docs/Drives, Sites, etc.)
- myUMD portal
- Library databases
- UMD VPN
- and many others
Why are we making the change?
UMD-Guest wireless was enabled to provide short term access to basic web services for visitors to our campus. It was never intended to be used for access to secured University resources. We are restricting access on UMD-Guest to ensure that University students, faculty and staff are using the most secure wireless access we provide.
If you need assistance making the change:
Please review our online directions at How to access UMD-Wireless service.
Or bring your laptop or mobile device to the ITSS TechCenter, Kirby Plaza 165, during business hours.
