Eduroam at UTSA W HAT IS EDUROAM ? eduroam (education roaming) is the secure worldwide federated network access service developed for the international research and education community. W HAT DOES IT DO ? For the traveler: eduroam provides per-user, per-session encrypted network access for visitors from participating institutions, without the need to gain guest credentials on arrival to an eduroam enabled location. The connectivity is instantaneous and the infrastructure is authenticated by the user. Study abroad students can join thousands of eduroam hotspots without any hassle or any data roaming charges.
Eduroam at UTSA For the institution: eduroam removes the administrative steps required to provision visitors from other educational institutions. Access between networks from R&E institutions is negotiated once during the federation process and for all members of participating institutions. The eduroam network addresses CALEA requirements for visitors from other schools. https://www.eduroam.us/ https://www.eduroam.us/
Eduroam at UTSA UTSA is a full participating member in Internet2 and Eduroam Eduroam is fully deployed and tested on the UTSA campus. To utilize Eduroam on the UTSA campus, guests must be from an Institution that is also a member of Eduroam. It is HIGHLY recommended by Eduroam that individuals log into their own institution’s Eduroam SSID Wireless network to ensure all is working correctly before they travel to member institutions. Eduroam does not handle support calls for individual institutions.
Eduroam at UTSA UTSA is a full participating member in Internet2 and Eduroam How do I utilize the Eduroam network? Detailed instructions are available on the Eduroam site https://www.eduroam.us https://www.eduroam.us For most users they should simply connect to the Eduroam SSID wireless network at member institutions and provide their credentials in the form of their institution email address for username Neal.Pelsor@UTSA.edu for example and then provide their password for their account at their home institution.Neal.Pelsor@UTSA.edu
In conclusion If you have questions or just general interest in Eduroam visit HTTPS://www.eduroam.us HTTPS://www.eduroam.us It is a very informative site with a current listing of all participating Institutions BEFORE users who wish to utilize Eduroam at a participating institution have them log into the UTSA EDUROAM wireless SSID and ensure that it works properly. If it works here at UTSA it should work at any member institution unless that institution is having issues
Eduroam at UTSA If a user is having issues connecting to Eduroam on the UTSA campus please have them bring the laptop to the OIT Connect Support Services window for assistance. Once they have left UTSA we will not be able to assist them with their configuration issues. We have had UTSA users successfully utilize Eduroam at European Institutions, UT System (UT does not participate in Eduroam), UTHSCSA and numerous other participating institutions. We average about 45 Eduroam guest daily at UTSA and this number is expected to grow.
