So, can walk-ins access the internet from their laptops at UBC? Yes, but only if they fall into two groups: people with FatPort accounts or visitors affiliated with institutions that use eduroam.
For more FatPort info, visit UBC IT’s FatPort page.
For more eduroam info and the institutions participating, visit UBC IT’s eduroam page.
For general wireless information (and for how UBC affiliated patrons can set up AutoConnect for ubcsecure wireless), visit UBC IT’s wireless page.
