Guest accounts allow visitors short term access to the UC Berkeley AirBears wireless network where available on campus. Accounts may be created by Faculty and Staff and are valid for a period of up to a week. AirBears guest accounts only allow access to the wireless network; they do not provide access to wired network services such as the campus DHCP service, campus email or other services. Longer term visitors who require such services must apply for an affiliate CalNet ID in order to be eligible.
AirBears guest accounts can also be used to log on to the Campus VPN Service.
Faculty and Staff may create, view and modify guest accounts via the guest account management system. Note that in order to access this system, you must authenticate via CalNet.
NOTE: The creator of a guest account is the contact for any security or policy concerns related to the use of the guest account. The creator of a guest account must ensure that the user of the guest account abides by the terms and policies set forth in the following websites:
Any guest account (and/or associated computer) found to be in violation will be blocked from further access to AirBears.
In order to obtain a guest account, the campus Staff or Faculty member who is sponsoring the guest's visit must create an account using the above process.

Guest accounts are not available without a campus sponsor. If you are a guest, please do not send unsolicited requests for sponsorship or guest accounts to the above contact address. Please do not ask campus Staff or Faculty with whom you have no prior affiliation to sponsor you.
