The University of Kansas has joined a global consortium of nearly 6,000 institutions offering quick and easy access to local Wi-Fi networks. Eduroam is a network access system developed for the international research and education community and currently available in 58 countries.
KU faculty, staff and students can log into the Wi-Fi networks of other eduroam member institutions anywhere in the world, simply by using their KU login credentials. And, visitors from other eduroam institutions can connect to our Wi-Fi network using the login credentials from their home institutions.
While KU is the first institution in the central United States and only the second Big 12 school to participate, more and more schools are joining eduroam, providing even more locations where KU students, faculty and staff can access the Internet when traveling.
Who Can Use It?
How to Connect
Accessing eduroam is almost exactly the same as accessing secure JAYHAWK wireless here on campus, but you'll need to add "@home.ku.edu" after your online ID. (Note: Your Online ID is not always the same as your email alias.) For example, if your online ID is a123b456, you would log in using "firstname.lastname@example.org," even though your email alias may be different. If your online ID is an older format, such as jdoe, you would login using "email@example.com" even though the email alias you use may be firstname.lastname@example.org.
For help in setting up eduroam on your laptop or mobile device, contact the campus technical representative for your unit, or get step-by-step instructions in our Knowledge Base:
Test Before You Travel
Before visiting another eduroam institution, you should log into eduroam here at KU to ensure your can connect on your mobile device or laptop.
And don't forget: When you return to KU, you should connect to Wi-Fi through the secure JAYHAWK network.
