eduroam (education roaming) is a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their device.
Wi-Fi access involves an access point and encrypted security. eduroam offers thousands of hotspots in over 70 countries, and offers reciprocity in accessibility for visiting professors, collaborative work, etc. In essence, eduroam allows students, faculty and staff of universities seamless WiFi access, as well as increased security, without much intervention from the IT division on campus.
So, if you travel to another campus that offers eduroam service, your ‘home’ institution issued username and password will give you access to their WiFi without any hassle, and vice versa. And your password is never shared with any of the access points.
Wherever you see ‘eduroam’ appear on your list of Wi-Fi networks, you can get online!
