Important Notes

Important notes for conference organizers:

  • University affiliated conference organizers are expected to coordinate all Internet access fees from participants along with initial SSO account and password information. IS will only accept MoCodes from conference organizers for Internet access- no cash or checks will be accepted. Participants with account and password questions or problems can contact the IS Call Center (816.235.2000) with questions.
  • Large requests for Internet access should be submitted a minimum of 2 weeks in advance of conference.
  • Conference organizers should communicate to participants the importance of having their computers updated with the most current security patches and updates prior to arriving on campus. This will help visitors get connected more rapidly.
  • Internet connectivity in the dorm rooms will require a network cable; wireless connectivity is available in the common areas.
