Applying for Guest ID for External Contractors & Affiliates

Contractors and affiliates include:

  • Tradespeople hired by Facilities
  • Student Association Employees
  • Union Employees
  • Student Markers
  • Chartwells – Food Service Employees
  • Custodial Staff – Best Service Pros
  • Other Vendors

IT Services must ensure that guests to the campus are sponsored by regular staff members here at BCIT. To meet this objective the IT Services Security Team has created a Request Guest Wifi Access form which must be submitted at least five days prior to accounts being issued for persons who are not BCIT staff.

Note: If the contractor requires network access for one week or less and only needs WiFi access, you can create an account for them yourself.  To do this, please use the instructions found here: How to create a guest wireless network account.

Apply for network credentials.

To apply for network credentials for an external contractor or affiliate you must complete the online application form called Request Guest Wifi Access.
