What is eduroam?

What is eduroam

eduroam (spelt with a lower case e) is a collaboration between colleges and universities around the world to make it easier for staff and students to use each others wireless networks. A student, or staff member in eduroam can, with use of their username from their home college or university, log in to a wireless network at another college or university that is already connected to eduroam.  Their motto is “Open your laptop and be online”.

eduroam stands for Education Roaming and is uses RADIUS and the standard 802.1x to relay information about users from the Identity Authority (the users home college or university) out to a client distributor (another college or university that also uses that type of wireless network).

The preferences we use here at Umeå University are WPA2-Enterprise with EAP-TLS.  Users must download and install both client certificates to be able to use eduroam. Directions on how to do this (for the most common operating systems) is available here:
eduroam’s coverage and coverage is available in all UmU bases.

Besides Umeå University, eduroam is available at a number of other colleges and universities in Sweden and around the world. For a Sweden map about eduroam click here: You can zoom in and out on the map to get more detailed information about where eduroam is in your area.
