Temple University faculty, students, and staff can take advantage of free and secure wireless service when visiting an eduroam® (education roaming) member university. Likewise, visitors from member institutions can access Temple's wireless network on Main, HSC, Ambler, and Harrisburg Campuses.

Just the beginning
The introduction of eduroam is just one project in a series of initiatives to share resources among universities, laboratories, and research centers. Easily sharing resources is possible because Temple joined the InCommon federation. The federation provides a secure way for each university to verify login credentials by sending them back through a system at the user's affiliated university.
Stay tuned as plans are underway to add more shared resources.
