Who May Access the Wireless Network to Connect to The University of Iowa Libraries Resources?

The service also provides wireless data network access for mobile computing devices such as laptop computers and smartphones. However, most locations require a valid HawkID in order to connect to the network. Visitors may obtain temporary sign-on privileges, though laptop borrowing privileges are currently limited to enrolled students.
