eduroam Details and Participating Institutions

This article applies to: Wi-Fi


Eduroam is a secure, world-wide roaming access service for the research and education community. It allows students, researchers, faculty and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity at their home institution, or when visiting other participating institutions.

For more information and a list of participating institutions, see the eduroam site.

How does eduroam work?

Eduroam requires the user to log in. Cornell users log in to eduroam with their full credentials: NetID@cornell.edu and NetID password. Use this same procedure to log in to eduroam at Cornell or at another participating institution.

Visitors to Cornell from other participating institutions use credentials assigned from their home institution. They do not need to register as a guest or obtain Cornell credentials to use eduroam.

Who should I contact if I need help with eduroam?

If Cornell is your home institution, contact the IT Service Desk.

If you are from another eduroam-participating institution, contact your home institution support.

Is eduroam secure?

Yes. When you log in on Cornell's campus, eduroam is secure. However, when you log in to eduroam at another participating institution, the local campus policies will apply.
