Eduroam is a collaborative network that provides students, faculty and staff (anyone with an active UWin ID) roaming wireless Internet connectivity when visiting Eduroam-enabled institutions. Users authenticate with their UWin ID and password. So students, faculty and staff from the University of Windsor who visit the campus of the University of Waterloo (another Eduroam-enabled institution) will be able to connect to Waterloo’s wireless network using their UWin ID and password, eliminating the time, expense and inconvenience of obtaining a guest account. This will also allow your guests from participating institutions the ability to connect to our network.
Eduroam has participating institutions in Europe, Canada, the USA and the Asia-Pacific region, with thirteen campuses in Ontario alone. Participation in the United States has been limited so far, but it is growing. The University of Michigan locally has begun testing.
