What is eduroam?
eduroam (education roaming) allows users (researchers, teachers, students, staff) from participating institutions to securely access the Internet from any eduroam participating institution. The eduroam principle is based on the fact that the user's authentication is done by the user's home institution, whereas the authorization decision allowing access to the network resources is done by the visited network.
eduroam allows users of an eduroam participating Institution to obtain Internet access when visiting other participating Institutions conveniently with their own email address and password. With eduroam service, if you are visiting an eduroam participating Institution, you are no longer required to apply for a separate account from the visiting Institution for Internet access. This benefits visiting faculty, academics traveling for conferences and collaborative work, study abroad students, visitors attending events, and even regional academic exchange, etc.
