Wireless Access

OHSU hosts a number of visitors each day on our campuses. From visiting faculty and researchers, to prospective residents and patients and families, our visitors often need wireless access. OHSU provides two wireless options: 

1. OHSU-Guest

Available for patients and their families, visiting students and faculty, vendors and others, OHSU-Guest provides unsecured web browsing for short-term sessions. This network is intended for average visitors and does not provide access to OHSU secure resources. 

Terms of service

By clicking the Connect button on the wireless connection web page, you agree to these terms of service and agree to hold OHSU harmless in any legal or judicial recourse resulting from your use of this service.
