Create a WFUmydevices wireless account for visitors

In most cases, WFUguest should be adequate for campus visitors. WFUguest is comparable to what is commonly available at hotels, airports, and coffee shops. Campus visitors do not need special credentials to access WFUguest.

However, Wake Forest students, faculty and staff may create a WFUmydevices wireless network account for any individual visiting the University that requires access to on-campus resources.

WFUmydevices may be obtained online through a WFU sponsor or by the campus visitor at the Information Systems Service Desk.

  • WFU students can create accounts for up to 7 days.
  • WFU Faculty and staff can create accounts for up to 180 days.
  • The Information Systems Service Desk may create accounts for all visitors for up to 7 days.  All visitors must present a photo ID when requesting a visitor wireless account.
  • The Information Systems Service Desk may create accounts for up to 180 days for students and employees of Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center.  Students and employees of WFUBMC must present a university ID badge when requesting the account.  The Information Systems Service Desk is located in the ZSR Library and hours of operation can be found here.
