How to Request Access
Access is part of user account request. Permission is granted to UCSF users.
UCSF's wireless service provides an alternative to traditional wired connectivity.
Supporting most wireless devices using 802.11a/b/g/n, it is the recommended method of network access at most locations, and it is widely available in clinical, research and administrative buildings.
Guest access is also provided for visitors and non-UCSF business communications.
- UCSFwpa – Protected access for UCSF users and affiliates with Active Directory and network accounts
- UCSFguest – Unprotected access for guests of UCSF and UCSF Medical Center
The UCSFwpa service provides a fully encrypted wireless connection between the client device (e.g., laptop, PDA, tablet) and the UCSF network. The access provided is identical to that of systems connected via cable.
The UCSFguest service does not provide encryption and is not safe for business use.
