The University of Maryland School of Medicine 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 SOM students, faculty, and staff visiting member institutions abroad may use email@example.com (for Information Services' customers, this is the user/network/directory ID and also the email address) and network/email 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 SOM. There are member institutions in the United States, Canada, Europe, and the Asia/Pacific region. Read more about availability of eduroam service.
The SSID for eduroam broadcasted through the SOM buildings is: eduroam.
