The University of Hawai‘i System is a member of eduroam.  

eduroam  is an international community comprising university and college institutions with an agreement to share network resources with all its members as they travel around the world. This allows individuals from participating schools who visit the University of Hawaii—whether on business or pleasure—to be able to get a secure Wi-Fi network connection using their own campus login username/password. Likewise, the reciprocal is true where traveling UH users can access another campus’ Wi-Fi by authenticating with their UH username and password. Registration for a temporary guest account is not required for logins, so any time you see the “eduroam” SSID in your list of Wi-Fi networks, you can rest assured that you can access the Internet instantly.

While it takes a little bit of setup beforehand (setup instructions below), it avoids having to request a guest account or pay for Internet access while visiting another institution.
