About Eduroam

Eduroam is a secure, world-wide roaming internet access service developed for the international research and education community. Eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating campuses to obtain internet connectivity when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop.

Eduroam uses 802.1x authentication, which means all users get their own unique security key. Once set, if you travel to any Eduroam member institution, you'll be able to use their Wi-Fi without making any adjustments. It will work automatically.
This secure, worldwide service also allows students, researchers and staff from other institutions that also use Eduroam to connect to the network by supplying the login credentials of their home organization.
