Guest Access

Before You Begin
If you are visiting from a participating Eduroam institution, you can log in to the eduroam wireless network, as an alternative to the guest registration process described in this section.

Overview
If you are visiting Temple University or the Temple University Health System, you can register for free Wi-Fi access on the TUguestwireless network. Once you are registered and receive your password, you will be able to log in to the TUsecurewireless network for up to five days. If you need additional time, you can simply re-register.

Notes:

  • You will need to have your cell phone with you during the registration process, as a pre-assigned password will be sent to you as a text message.
  • Temple uses a text messaging service from Twilio, Inc. that reaches almost every mobile carrier worldwide. For a list of countries that are covered, go to the coverage page, scroll down and click the Supported destinations link.
  • Once you are registered, you can use the same username and password to connect from any device.
