eduroam: Global WiFi Roaming for Academia

eduroam stands for education roaming. It offers users from participating academic institutions secure Internet access at any other eduroam participating location. The eduroam architecture that makes this possible is based on a number of technologies and agreements, which together provide the eduroam user experience: "open your laptop and be online". eduroam is expected to be available to UTD students, faculty, and staff in February 2017. Members of participating institutions will be able to authenticate and use our wireless internet via the new “eduroam” network name (SSID) and we will be able to authenticate on networks at participating institutions using our NetID and password.
