The Pomona wireless network provides the best performance and access to Pomona network resources.

Pomona was created to duplicate the wired network infrastructure not provided by the other wireless networks. Those who connect to Pomona wireless have the same access they would have if they connected to an ethernet (wired) port.

The Pomona wireless network is only available to Pomona College faculty, staff and students. All wireless devices need to be registered in order to use the Pomona wireless network. To register, connect to Pomona wireless and open a web browser. The browser will be automatically re-directed to the registration page.  If not, you can manually direct the browser to http://registration.pomona.edu


The Eduroam wireless service allows Faculty, Staff and enrolled Students to use their Pomona login credentials at other academic institutions that are also offering the Eduroam wireless service on their campus.

Eduroam had its beginnings in Europe. So, the vast majority of European colleges and universities participate in this service, in addition to many in North America as well as other countries. To find out where the Eduroam service is available, please visit: eduroam.org

When visiting a campus with “Eduroam“, select the Eduroam wireless network and enter your Pomona Login ID and password.

Pomona Login IDs are configured slightly differently depending on when you started at Pomona College.

  • Older Login IDs will be configured for example as LoginID@campus.pomona.edu (e.g., ces04747@campus.pomona.edu).
  • Newer Login IDs will be configured for example as LoginID@pomona.edu (e.g., ces02015@pomona.edu).

Likewise, guests at Pomona College who are from another school participating in Eduroam can also use Eduroam wireless here using their login credentials from their home campus.


The Pomona-Guest wireless network should be used by guests of Pomona College (alumni, speakers, parents, vendors, auditors, etc.) that need quick and short term access to the Internet.
