eduroam, a secure roaming wireless service, will be available at the University of Georgia starting on January 27.
All UGA students, faculty and staff have access to eduroam while on campus with their wireless devices.
In addition, eduroam allows all UGA students, faculty and staff to get wireless service when visiting participating eduroam institutions in the U.S. and abroad. Currently, about 400 higher education institutions in the United States are eduroam participants. eduroam is also available at educational institutions and research facilities in 74 countries. For a list of participating institutions, please visit www.eduroam.us.
eduroam is an additional wireless network option available throughout most academic and administrative facilities on the UGA campus. PAWS-Secure wireless is also available for anyone with a MyID. The guest wireless network, Welcome to UGA, is available for guests without a MyID.
To access eduroam, UGA students, faculty and staff must provide their full UGA credentials with their MyID followed by “@uga.edu” (example: YourMyID@uga.edu).
When a MyID password is updated, it must also be updated for eduroam access.
eduroam allows students, faculty and staff of participating eduroam schools to get Internet access across institutions using their school’s credentials.
For example, a UGA faculty member visiting at Clemson University, which is also an eduroam participant, could use their UGA credentials (MyID@uga.edu) to log in to Clemson’s wireless network on campus. Likewise, a Clemson faculty member could do the same with their credentials when they visit the UGA campus.
The EITS Help Desk website provides technical documentation on how to use eduroam at UGA and at participating eduroam institutions. For technical assistance, please call the EITS Help Desk at 706-542-3106.
