The University has enhanced its wireless network with the implementation of eduroam.

This new wireless system enables the University to become part of the eduroam initiative. Eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, worldwide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

Eduroam allows students, faculty, and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by utilizing their UMaryland email address on their laptop or smartphone.

Having started in Europe, eduroam has gained momentum throughout the research and education community and is available in 54 countries. This gives students, faculty and staff the ability to connect to any participating University's wireless system.
