Qualtrics Survey Software

Only College of Business faculty, staff and students are entitled to a Qualtrics Survey Software account.

Qualtrics is an on-line survey software.  The link is https://louisville.az1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0qZOiqa6EKb0MN7

Wireless Access

The UofL wireless network is a secure network that encrypts traffic on the network to prevent intrusions and interception of traffic.

FACULTY & STAFF – PLEASE REMEMBER:  When you change your password, you must forget the ulsecure network on your phone, ipad, etc., and then connect again with new password.

Three types of wireless access are available, depending upon who you are:

  • ulvisitor (for visitors; short-term use, limited internet functionality)
  • ULSPONSOR (full-service unencrypted network access for up to 30 days; requires a UofL sponsor)
  • ulsecure (requires an valid ulink username/password, preferred network for UofL student, faculty, staff)

UofL now has visitor wireless access.  Prior to this, any guest coming on campus (vendors, alumni, conference attendees, etc.) had to be granted a ULSPONSOR account through a UofL IT online form for internet access.  With this new account, the visitor is offered up to six hours of connectivity. The sessions will automatically log out after 15 minutes of inactivity, but visitors can log back on within that six hour period.

How to get online for a campus visitor:

  1. Select the SSID ulvisitor      from your device’s list of available wireless networks.
  2. Open a browser and load any      URL; you will be redirected to an access page (on some mobile devices, the      access page should open automatically).
  3. Enter a valid email address
  1. Click Accept to acknowledge the terms of use. Your browser will be sent to a confirmation page and from there you can get online.
