Temporary Access to UW Tacoma Wireless Network (WiFi Access)
Visitors from campuses and institutions participating in the Eduroam network can use Eduroam to access the UW's Wi-Fi network.
Alumni and other patrons who already have a NetID may simply log on using their NetID username and password. If you're not sure if you have a NetID or if you have forgotton your password you should check that on Seattle's NetID Information page.
Users affiliated with an institution of higher education or a Federal, State, or local government agency can sign up for wireless access at any time. To sign up, visit one of our service desks in the UW Tacoma Library. During the sign-up process, users will be required to present two forms of ID.
Either current higher education identification, OR current Federal, State, or local government employee ID. Examples of acceptable ID for this first category include; Tacoma Community College ID, Military ID, and State Department of Ecology ID.
State driver’s license, state identification card, or a passport. There is an option for “library card” on the online form but this is not an acceptable form of picture ID at UW Tacoma.
Public users without educational or government affiliations will be assessed on a case-by-case basis by UW Tacoma Library Staff. Users are directed to fill out the Request for Wireless Access Form, which includes a brief description of their research, justification of why the public computers are not suitable for their needs, the amount of time needed to complete the research, and contact information. Library users requesting special access to the wireless network will generally receive an answer from the Library within 3 business days. If approved, users will need to come to one of our service desks with a valid form of government ID and their approval email to sign up for their wireless access.
Equipment and Technology for Checkout

All equipment is available at the Snoqualmie service desk in the Snoqualmie Building. The desk is open during all the library's operating hours. Bring your Husky Card to check out equipment. Equipment should be returned in person to the desk, not in a book drop. Please do not leave library equipment unattended in public spaces.
