What is EDUROAM?

EDUROAM (education roaming) is an international Internet access roaming service for users in research, higher education and further education. It provides researchers, teachers, and students easy and secure network access when visiting an institution other than their own. Authentication of users is performed by their home institution, using the same credentials as when they access the network locally, while authorization to access the Internet and possibly other resources is handled by the visited institution. Users do not have to pay for using eduroam.

Having started in Europe, eduroam has rapidly expanded  throughout the research and education community and is now available in nearly 90 territories worldwide and emerging pilot locations. The service is provided at the local level by the participating institutions (universities, colleges, research institutes etc.).
