Get Mom Online

Welcome, Moms!

There’s a ton of stuff to do on campus and around C-U. But it’s OK to have some internet time, too.

That’s why we provide free public WiFi for guests. Follow these simple steps to get online:

  1. Select IllinoisNet_Start.
  2. Click Visitor Access from the menu on the left.
  3. Provide relevant information (name, country calling code, mobile number, email address). Find your country calling code.
  4. Click Generate Account.

Your username and password will pop up on the screen and will be emailed to you.

IllinoisNet_Start is like public WiFi at a coffee shop: it’s public. You’re sharing it with a bunch of other people. As such, we recommend that you wait until you get home to do any sensitive work like banking or entering important passwords.

Your access expires after 24 hours. Be sure to follow these steps every day you want to get online.
