The Sponsor system enables authenticated University employees to sponsor temporary network accounts for use by visitors to the University.
The Sponsor system enables authenticated University employees to sponsor temporary network accounts for use by visitors to the University. Visitor accounts are strictly limited to wired and wireless access on the student network, SITL desktop access and the Internet. No other local online services are available apart from public facing web content. Sponsors will pre-register visitors on their behalf.
Visitors who require wireless access only and are registered in an eduroam-enabled institution and have their devices configured correctly before their visit to the University do not require a visitor account.
Details about eduroam service are available at ulster.ac.uk/isd/services/networking/eduroam
The system is designed to be a self service facility, once initiated by the Sponsor. Accounts are available for short term use by single or small groups of visitors. For large conference use of the system, notification must be made in advance to the Service Desk by the conference organizer with at least one week's notice.
Passwords may be changed during logged in sessions at the SITL desktop, or via a kiosk situated at the campus Library.
This is based upon the Policy Implementation Framework
The Service Desk will provide support to those unable to avail of it through the Service Catalog Entry and self-help resources.
All University employees and visitors they sponsor.
