The University of Maryland has joined eduroam (education roaming), a secure, worldwide roaming Internet access service developed for the international research and education community. Eduroam allows campus community members at any participating institution to use wireless network services at any other participating institution with the simplicity and convenience of using the login credentials issued to them by their home institutions.
This means that UMD students, faculty, and staff visiting member institutions abroad may use DirectoryID@umd.edu and Directory password to log into wireless at other member institutions. Additionally, university community members of eduroam member institutions can use their logins and passwords to access the wireless network here at Maryland. There are member institutions in the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Asia/Pacific region. For more information about availability of eduroam service, visit www.eduroam.org.
If you're planning a visit to an eduroam institution, access will be simplest if you collect the necessary setting information before you go on your trip -- settings for both your home institution and the institution you are visiting will be needed for set-up.
