PPPL is a participant in eduroam (short for education roaming), a secure, world-wide roaming internet access service developed for the international research and education community.

eduroam enables you to use your PPPL account credentials (email address and password) to obtain wireless access to the internet at participating institutions around the world.

The purpose is to facilitate network access between participating institutions by extending the network to allow visitors to use the login credential issued by their home institution.
This alleviates the need for visitors to obtain guest access or for hosting institutions to issue temporary guest access to visitors who have the credentials to access the eduroam network.

Eduroam service is currently available at more than 3,900 institutions worldwide. Visit to learn more about it.
