Visitors from institutions using eduroam
Sussex belongs to eduroam (UK), so visitors from other universities who have eduroam (UK) can connect their laptop computers to the "eduroam" wireless service at Sussex, and do not need to get a separate Sussex computing account. Visitors must have set up their laptop computers for "eduroam" at their home institution before they come to Sussex. For further information see
Visitors based at Sussex for more than a few days
All other visitors to the university who need to use computing facilities, including those who would like to connect their own laptops to the campus network, must be registered and have a Sussex computing account.
To obtain a computing account, the School Administrator of the School they are visiting, (or Human Resources if they are an "official visitor") must first register them as a visitor to their School in the central staff admin database.
Once this has been done, then the visitor can come to the IT Service Desk in Shawcross to collect their computing account details.
If a member of staff needs a temporary account for a visitor or guest lecturer then they should contact the IT Service Desk giving at least 3 days notice: email@example.com.
There are separate arrangements for conference delegates, who should contact the Conference Office: firstname.lastname@example.org.
