William Paterson has joined eduroam, a wireless service accessible to the international research and education community. eduroam allows students, researchers, faculty, and staff secure seamless wireless access at all participating institutions.

William Paterson Faculty/Staff can user their university credentials (using username@wpunj.edu as their username along with their WPU password) at participating institutions who provide the Eduroam SSID. Users from other universities are able to sign in on our campus via the Eduroam SSID that we broadcast. This eliminates the need for providing open wifi or supplying credentials for those who are at other participating universities or for those participants who are attending a function here on campus.

For more information, view the “What is eduroam” video from eduroam.

Using eduroam, WPU travelers gain network access at any participating institution or location. Since the home institution does the authentication, the visited institution does not need to explicitly grant access. This benefits visiting academics traveling for conferences and collaborative work, study abroad students, and other traveling students, faculty, and staff. For a map of participation US institutions visit www.eduroam.us/institutions.


Note: WPU Students can use this service at other eduroam institutions using their WPU account, however we do not currently support on campus use of eduroam by WPU students. Please use WP Wireless networks.
