Tips for Guest Presenters:

Guests bringing personal computers/mobile devices will ONLY be able to use the Lawrence network services (access to the Internet) via the LUGuest wireless network. Technology Services does NOT permit personal devices to connect to the Lawrence network via a "wired" connection. Guests wishing to connect computing devices to a projector for the purpose of a presentation may do so. We request that they provide their own video adaptor for VGA connection to the projector.
