How to Use a Kiosk

When you first walk up to a kiosk, you may notice that a screen saver is enabled. If the kiosk has been unused for a period of five minutes or more, the screen saver will activate. Follow these steps:

  1. Click on the space bar or move the trackball. A logon window will appear.
  2. Click on the Logon button. A web browser displays the Brown University's Internet Kiosk home page.
  3. Select a link on the page that indicates the information or service you want to use. You will be provided with on-screen instructions related to your selection.

Troubleshooting Tips

Problem: When I approached the kiosk, neither the logon window nor the Brown Internet Kiosk web page is displayed.
Solution: If you are unable to use the kiosk, please notify the IT Service Center at 863-HELP.

Problem: I am an enrolled student, faculty or staff member, but I do not have a Brown University account.
Solution: Select the Activate Account link in the Account and Email section of the Brown Internet Kiosk home page and following the instructions provided.
