What is eduroam?
eduroam (education roaming) is a secured Wi-Fi network service that allows students, faculty and staff to use their home institution’s Wi-Fi credentials to access Wi-Fi network services, when visiting other institutions supporting eduroam – world wide. There is no need to set up a guest account or to use unsecured wireless.

At the Password prompt enter your campus computer password – the same one that you use to log into the computers in the classrooms, labs and offices.
The next time you visit another university’s campus and they’re a member of eduroam you will automatically be able to attach to their eduroam wireless network.
