Wireless Access

Princeton Users

Access to the puwireless network is available throughout the various campus libraries. To connect, Princeton netID holders with wireless laptops or mobile devices must first register their equipment in the university's Host Database. For general information on the use of wireless on campus, see OIT's wireless information pages.


OIT's Visitor Wireless Service provides short-term Internet connectivity to wireless devices brought by visitors to Princeton University. It provides service to a device for up to seven days within a calendar month. Access to licensed Library resources is not available through the puvisitor connection.


Princeton University participates in the federated network access service, "eduroam." eduroam is an initiative of Universities from around the world that provides “education roaming,” or a simple way for students, faculty, and staff from participating institutions to get instant and secure access to the Internet when visiting each others’ institutions. eduroam participants need only enter their login credentials from their home institution to gain access to the eduroam service where they are visiting. For members of the Princeton community, this would be your netID in the form of your @princeton.edu email address and your password. At Princeton, the wireless map shows which buildings and outside areas on campus offer access to the eduroam service. Information on using eduroam at Princeton can be found online at www.princeton.edu/eduroam
