eduroam: instant wireless access for visitors and Princeton travelers

OIT is pleased to announce that Princeton University now participates in the federated network access service, "eduroam." eduroam is an initiative of Universities from around the world that provides “education roaming,” or a simple way for students, faculty, and staff from participating institutions to get instant and secure access to the Internet when visiting each others’ institutions. eduroam participants need only enter their login credentials from their home institution to gain access to the eduroam service where they are visiting. For members of the Princeton community, this would be your netID in the form of your @princeton.edu email address and your password.  

Information on using eduroam at Princeton can be found online at www.princeton.edu/eduroam

eduroam is a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. The service is offered at more than 5500 institutions, in more than 50 countries. If you’re wondering where you can get eduroam service, the eduroam website provides a complete list of participating institutions by country, and includes US institutions. At Princeton, the wireless map shows which buildings and outside areas on campus offer access to the eduroam service.

More information about the eduroam service in the United States can be found at www.eduroamus.org, while information on the global eduroam project can be found at www.eduroam.org.

The availability of eduroam at Princeton offers the added benefit of simplifying network administration. Visitors from institutions participating in eduroam no longer need to be provisioned on the Princeton network. It also further supports Princeton’s security initiative by providing an encrypted and secure wireless connection. 

Princeton University students, faculty and staff who need help with eduroam should call the OIT Help Desk at (609) 258-HELP or email helpdesk@princeton.edu. Visitors to Princeton should call the help center at their home institutions.
