Guest network: UiT-Guest - (campus tromsø)

The wireless guest network "uit-guest" is primarily intended for people visiting the university who do not have account with UiT or with an Eduroam-affiliated organization. The guest network uit-guest allows access to the internet but not access to restricted sites and / or online services that require a connection to the UiT network proper.

You may not access the guest network with your university account.
