"Eduroam"-ing to your Miami home

by Karen O’Hara, information technology services

Studying and traveling abroad got a little easier this year when Miami began partnering with an Internet service called eduroam.

Whether you’re headed to the University of Cincinnati or the Universidad de Salamanca, the eduroam experience supplies you with a full network connection based on your Miami credentials, rather than the limited functionality often provided through “guest” access.  

Developed for the international research and education communities, eduroam (education roaming) is a secure network access service available in nearly 70 countries and territories.

Miami students, faculty, researchers and staff who are visiting other participating institutions can obtain Internet connectivity by simply selecting the eduroam network ID on their mobile devices or laptops. Then log in with your full Miami email address and MUnet password.

Before you travel, check to see if a nearby institution offers eduroam. The service is available at selected U.S. and international institutions, including some libraries and museums.

It is also a good idea to test and configure your connection through Miami’s eduroam network before you leave. For directions, see the knowledge base article Wireless: Configuring Eduroam Connections.
