This Fall, UTPA joins a growing number of US universities offering eduroam wireless access. Eduroam is secure, high-speed wireless access that works the way you expect it to in every UTPA building on campus, the outdoor spaces, and even the parking lots.
However, with eduroam there’s a big difference once you find yourself on another eduroam campus. Now, you can get on the Internet through their eduroam wireless connection. No more having to find someone to let you have a guest account. Just turn on your mobile device, connect to eduroam, and you’re on.
The nearest eduroam campus is South Texas College (STC) in McAllen. STC and UTPA worked closely to to bring eduroam to both institutions. We believe it will be a great convenience for everyone who spends time on both campuses.
Traveling on study abroad programs? Check the eduroam US map or eduroam international map before you leave. If you find yourself near an eduroam campus, you can use their wireless connection to get on the net, without piling up roaming data charges.
On the UTPA campus, you can get started with eduroam by connecting to the UTPA-SETUP wireless network and following the on-screen instructions, or by connecting manually to the eduroam wireless network.
Once you’re on, you’re on–here or any eduroam campus in the world.
