Connecting to 'Eduroam' Wireless

FAU has recently implemented the Eduroam wireless network campus-wide. Eduroam is a collaborative effort between many of the world’s institutions of higher learning to provide easy roaming access to the wireless networks at partner institutions.

Visitors from other institutions may use their institutions’ login credentials to access the FAU wireless infrastructure, and FAU users may use their FAU login credentials at partner institutions. This removes the requirement for visiting professors to sign up for a courtesy account or use guest wireless at institutions they visit.

A list of institutions where Eduroam can be utilized is available here.
