Lesley University does not loan hotspots, but you can access Eduroam at global partner locations or borrow a hotspot from your local Massachusetts library. Here's how to go about it:



Lesley University is a member of the Eduroam network, which allows students, faculty, and staff to connect to wireless networks at participating institutions worldwide. To access Eduroam, follow these steps:

  1. Check the Eduroam map to find a participating institution near you.
  2. Before you leave for your trip, make sure your Lesley University email account is active and your Lesley University login credentials are up to date.
  3. When you arrive at the participating institution, look for the Eduroam wireless network and select it.
  4. Log in with your Lesley University email and password.
  5. You should now be connected to the internet.

Borrow a Hotspot from Your Local Massachusetts Library

Many libraries in Massachusetts have hotspots available for loan to library patrons. Here's how to borrow a hotspot: 

  1. Check the local Massachusetts library map to see if they have hotspots available for loan.
  2. If hotspots are available, check to see if there are any restrictions on who can borrow them, how long they can be borrowed for, and if there are any fees or deposits required.
  3. If you meet the requirements and agree to the terms of the loan, reserve a hotspot online or at the library.
  4. Pick up the hotspot at the library and follow the instructions provided for connecting to the internet.
  5. Be sure to return the hotspot to the library at the end of the loan period to avoid any late fees.
