UofM Guest is the network that guests and visitors to the University, including parents, should use while they are on campus. If you have a University of Minnesota account you should not be using UofM Guest and should instead be connecting to eduroam.
NOTE: The University of Minnesota's data networks are currently in the process of being upgraded. This article refers to connecting to the "UofM Guest" network that is found sporadically across Univerfsity campuses; if you are trying to connect to the more widely available network "UofM-Guest" instead of "UofM Guest", see the WiFi: Guest Access article.
On your device, navigate to the area where you can view all wifi networks that are in range.
Select UofM Guest from the list of available WiFi networks.
