Eduroam

About Eduroam

Eduroam (education roaming) allows users (researchers, teachers, students, staff) from participating institutions to securely access the Internet from any eduroam-enabled institution. The eduroam principle is based on the fact that the user’s authentication is done by the user’s home institution, whereas the authorisation decision allowing access to the network resources is done by the visited network.

Eduroam is free for it’s users, there is no charge for eduroam use world-wide. The providers of eduroam hotspots make the service available to benefit all members of the research and education community.

The Eduroam service is also safe, it uses secure encryption and authentication standards; It’s security by far exceeds typical commercial hotspots.
