Eduroam lets faculty, staff and students connect to leading universities

By Cathy Gonzalez, UNT System Information Technology

The UNT System has joined leading research institutions by implementing eduroam, a worldwide network access service.  

The eduroam service allows researchers, faculty, staff and students from participating institutions to securely access the Internet from any eduroam-enabled institution.  All UNT, UNT Dallas, and UNT System office locations are configured as eduroam accessible sites. 

There are currently more than 5,500 locations offering eduroam services, including Case Western, Notre Dame, Cornell, Texas A&M, University of Texas System office, Princeton, Tulane, UCLA and the University of Chicago.

Employees and students can connect their wireless devices at participating locations with their UNT user name and password. Similarly, visiting professors, students, researchers and staff from other eduroam enabled institutions can access wireless services while at most UNT components.

The eduroam principle is based on the fact that the user's authentication (security login process) is done by the user's home institution, while the authorization decision allowing access to the network resources is done by the visited network. The user's home institution verifies the user's credentials and sends to the visited institution the result of the verification. The eduroam process is based on the most secure encryption and authentication standards in existence today. Its security by far exceeds typical commercial hotspots. 

Faculty, staff and students will continue to connect their wireless devices through Eaglenet when physically at UNT, UNT Dallas and other UNT office in Dallas. They will be able to log in with their EUID and password when visiting any other eduroam accessible campus.

UNT Health Science Center in Fort Worth is not now eduroam accessible. UNTHSC students and employees can use the eduroam network at other UNT system locations and at other universities around the world.

When visiting an eduroam campus, log in with your EUID/password and location:
