McCombs Internet Access
You can access the Internet three different ways when you are in the business school complex.
Access to the Public Network is restricted to the University students, faculty, staff, and sponsored guests through the Public Network Authentication System. Students, Faculty, and Staff use their UT EID to log in, or authenticate. Your UT EID must reflect that you are a current student, faculty, or staff member of the University.
Sponsored Guests (such as official visitors, conference attendees, lecturers, etc.) use Guest IDs provided by a host or sponsor to log in. For information on requesting guest accounts, see the last section of this article.

You can access the Internet using a computer in one of our computer labs. You can also use your notebook computer in one of the labs and use a network port or wireless internet. For more information on the McCombs computer labs, go to the computer labs web site.

Access For Visitors
Sponsored Guests (such as official visitors, conference attendees, lecturers, etc.) use Guest IDs provided by a host or sponsor to log in. This temporary user name and password combination enables you to connect to the Guest Network using your network-equipped laptop or PDA device.
Guests: If you are a guest at the University and need access to the Public Network, contact the conference coordinator or the department with which you will be working. Your sponsor can obtain a Guest ID for you.
