What is eduroam?

eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain wireless Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their laptop and logging on to the eduroam service.

A list of the participating institutions, in Ireland, can be found here.
