eduroam Wireless Network

ITS is leveraging SLU's participation in Internet2 to implement a new wireless service called eduroam. With hundreds of thousands of wireless access points sharing a common identifier, eduroam acts as one large, worldwide wireless hotspot. The eduroam network allows travelers from one academic institution to gain network access at another institution with minimal configuration changes and no need for explicit access approval. This benefits visiting faculty and those traveling for conferences and collaborative work, study abroad students, and visitors attending NCAA activities. SLU-users remains the best way for current SLU faculty, staff, and students to connect to wireless while on SLU's campus. Please send questions or feedback regarding eduroam to the ITS Service Desk at 977-4000.
