EDUROAM

Q. What is EDUROAM ?

EDUROAM is a roaming service that enables university students, faculty and staff to use their Laurentian credentials to access the wireless services, at no cost, when visiting other universities or participating institutions of the EDUROAM program.

 

Q. Who has access EDUROAM?

All current students and employed faculty and staff (regardless of leave status) have access to the EDUROAM service.

 

Q. What institutes are participating in the EDUROAM program?

For an up-to-date list of participating Canadian schools, visit the Canadian Access Federation website at http://www.canarie.ca/en/caf/participants. For a list of international partners, visit http://eduroam.org

 

Q. What are the device requirements for an EDUROAM connection?

In order to connect to the EDUROAM network you will need a Windows (XP, 7 or 8) or Mac OSX 10.5 and newer operating system and have a wireless adapter that supports 802.11a/b/g connectivity using the WPA2 protocol. Most laptops/Macbooks purchased after 2005 will meet this requirement.

 

Q. How do I get connected?

For most newer devices you simply have to select the EDUROAM SSID/network when connecting to the wireless access point and enter your Laurentian credentials.

When asked for credentials to login to EDUROAM, remember to use your Laurentian username and append the @laurentian.ca domain.

e.g If your username is jx_doe, enter  jx_doe@laurentian.ca

Q. Why doesn't Laurentian offer a EDUROAM SSID on campus?

Laurentian currently offers unrestricted wireless access to all parties, including guests that visit the campus. Since there are no restrictions or need for a login, we do not currently offer the EDUROAM SSID/Network.
