Internet access for guests and visitors

Long term access - more than 7 days

For visitors who may be requiring internet access and other related facilities for more than 7 days, and for contract employees, all faculty members and designated staff from the departments/centers can directly create user accounts from Long term account portal. The accounts are activated within one hour automatically. However, after account creation, the hard copy of the account creation details with signatures of the visitor and the creator, and the concerned head will have to be sent to the CSC for validation, without which the account will get automatically deactivated after 7 days. These accounts will have email and disk space facilities.

Instructions for the visitor

Please connect to "IITD_WIFI" using the provided username and password. Please note the distinction between o, O and 0; I, l and 1. It is necessary that you change your password as soon as possible and use the new password for all future connections.

Short term access - less than 7 days

For Guests/Workshops and other short term visitors who may be visiting IITD for less than 7 days , their faculty hosts can directly create internet access accounts. These accounts will not have IITD email and disk space facilities, but the procedure for WiFi and internet accesses will be simpler. The faculty host must create an account for the guest at Guest Account Portal and note down the randomly generated password. The account will be automatically deleted after the specified expiry date.
