Event Account

What is an 'Event' account?

EVENT accounts are limited accounts to allow network access for events, such as Sporting Events or Conferences. These accounts have a very short life time, only for the length of the event. They are not tied to a specific person, but require a Marist sponsor. One 'EVENT' account is shared among all attendees of the event/conference.

Why do I need an 'Event' account?

If you have an event that will last from 1 to 14 days, and the attendees will require access to the internet, you will want to create an 'Event' account. This account can be shared among all attendees of the event. Users can use this account to gain access to the internet to check their email, etc. If your event will last longer than 14 days, please contact the Help Desk for assistance.(HelpDesk@marist.edu 845-575-4357 (HELP))
