University of Delaware students and employees are encouraged to use eduroam for secure campus Wi-Fi. On Aug. 1, eduroam will be the most secure Wi-Fi network available to the university community, a release stated.
The new UD eduroam also allows students and employees to securely share devices (for example, wireless printers and Apple TVs) over Wi-Fi. This service had not previously been available.
Eduroam is “education roaming” Wi-Fi that brings secure internet access to thousands of institutions in over 70 countries.
Eduroam users do not need guest credentials to log in to Wi-Fi at participating institutions. For example, a UD student studying abroad in Spain could use their UD credentials at an eduroam institution, and a visitor from Spain could use his or her eduroam credentials at UD.
