Please note - eduroam.us transitioning to InCommon.org

We are transitioning the eduroam.us website to incommon.org/eduroam. During the transition, some information will be at eduroam.us and some at the InCommon site. This is not an ideal experience for you, and we hope to minimize the problems and any frustration. Please email eduroam-support@internet2.edu if you can't find what you are looking for.

eduroam is a global wireless network access service developed for the international research and education community. eduroam allows students, researchers, faculty, and staff secure seamless wireless access at all participating institutions.

eduroam in the U.S. is brought to you by Internet2 in collaboration with the global eduroam community. Since 2012, Internet2 has contracted with ANYROAM, LLC, to operate the technical infrastructure of eduroam in the U.S.

Using eduroam, travelers gain network access at any participating institution or location. Since the home institution does the authentication, the visited institution does not need to explicitly grant access. This benefits visiting academics traveling for conferences and collaborative work, study abroad students, and other traveling students, faculty, and staff.

eduroam requires the participating institution to operate the IEEE 802.1X protocol (WPA2-enterprise) on the wireless network. For additoinal technical information, see the eduroam.us website.


Benefits

Individuals use their home institution credentials to access the eduroam network at all participating institutions anywhere around the world.

Individuals simply open their laptop or device configured to connect to eduroam. They are remotely authenticated and authorized to access the eduroam network, and their traffic is encrypted between the device and the wireless network.

For the institution, eduroam removes the administrative burden of providing guest access for academics.

An institution can use eduroam as a single solution for its wireless network, serving its own students, faculty, staff, and researchers; as well as guests from other eduroam participating institutions. Using eduroam as a single solution for the institution's wireless network also prepares travellers for access at other participating eduroam institutions.

Internet2 Higher Education Members do not pay the eduroam subscription fees; eduroam is a member benefit for those organizations. Others are charged a small annual fee. In addition, you do not need to join InCommon nor Internet2 in order to subscribe to eduroam.
