Authorized UK Faculty and Staff may become "Sponsors" for guest WiFi access. This allows multiple guest accounts to be generated at one time. This is useful for events on campus which require Internet access for all attendees.

  • Sponsorship allows you to grant 5-day access by default. If you need to sponsor access for longer periods, for vendors, contractors etc., please contact ITS Customer Services.
  • Department chairs, IT administrators, positions with a public-facing role, and their designees will be able to request sponsor access.
  • Sponsors will be reviewed by ITS Security before access is given.

If you have any questions, or would like to become a sponsor, please contact ITS Customer Services at 859-218-HELP (4357) or 218help@uky.edu.

Please note: Sponsorship is not intended for student use.
