Connect with confidence when roaming and keep your institution’s wifi safe. Requests to join visiting networks are routed back to their home institution via a secure, encrypted session.
Use your credentials anywhere you roam. 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.
Ease of use
Securely connecting to wifi is as simple as opening your laptop. Individuals simply open their laptop or device configured to connect to eduroam. They are remotely authenticated and authorized to access the eduroam network. For the institution, eduroam removes the administrative burden of providing guest access and can use eduroam as a single solution for its wireless network, serving its own users as well as visitors.
