Eduroam Secure Wireless for UA Travelers and Visitors

University IT Services
April 23, 2013

University IT Services offers eduroam, a free, fast, secure wireless service that benefits both visitors to the UA and UA campus community members visiting other institutions in United States and abroad.

eduroam is an international consortium of educational and research institutions that allow visitors from member institutions to log in to a secure wireless network using credentials from their home institutions.

Using a secure wireless network is a vital part of protecting personal and institutional information while on a laptop or mobile device. It is especially important when visiting sites that require a password, financial, or other sensitive information. This is why UITS provides UAWiFi, a secure wireless network for members of the UA campus community, and eduroam – equally fast, secure wireless – for visitors whose institutions participate in the eduroam consortium.

Benefits to UA campus community members who travel or study abroad

When you visit other institutions that participate in the eduroam consortium, you can be as secure as using UAWiFi on the physical Arizona campus.

Choose the eduroam wireless network and log in:

  • Username: [UANetID]@catnet.arizona.edu  

Adding “@catnet.arizona.edu” lets the eduroam network know which school’s credentials you are entering.

  • Password: [UANetID password]

Benefits to visitors to UA

Guests affiliated with institutions that participate in the eduroam consortium are able to access the eduroam network at UA using credentials from their home institution, with the same speed and security as UAWiFi users.

Where can I connect to eduroam?

A list of participating eduroam institutions is available at http://www.eduroamus.org.

When visiting one of the participating institutions, “eduroam” will be a network option in your wireless settings.

More information is available at  http://uits.arizona.edu/eduroam. Assistance with eduroam or other UA wireless networks is available from the 24/7 IT Support Center at 626-TECH (8324) or 247.arizona.edu.
