Public WiFi - "UWMVisitor" Account Access and Information

NEW DATE! Effective September 29th, 2018, Our networks formerly known as "Public" and "UWMSponsored" were retired and replaced with "UWMVisitor". This network is for visitors of UWM - those guests visiting campus that do not have an ePantherID, or are not part of the Eduroam federation. Faculty, staff, and students should continue to use UWMWiFi.

Why did this change?

"UWMVisitor" will be fully encrypted, whereas "Public" and "UWMSponsored" are not. This provides all users with a secure experience. Additionally, visitors will no longer need to request unique credentials for their particular events on campus, or click through agreements that slow down initial use.
