Introduction to eduroam

Eduroam is an international initiative that allows members of educational establishments to gain internet access at other member sites easily and securely using credentials from their institute.

If a UKZN staff or student is visiting another  institution which is one of the Eduroam participating organisations then they should be able to connect to the  Eduroam  in the same was as they would at UKZN using their UKZN network username and password to authenticate.

Similarly if a visitor from another institute with Eduroam can connect to the Eduroam wifi network using credentials from their institute.

A request is made via the ICS Call Centre to enable Eduroam at a location.  Once it has been enabled you can select it from the list of available access points.
