eduroam Wi-Fi for visiting academics

Visitors from other institutions may connect the eduroam Wi-Fi network.

About eduroam

An organisation can take part in the eduroam service through being a ‘Home’ institution, a ‘Visited’ institution, or both.

  • A ‘Home’ institution provides authentication for its users when they wish to access internet facilities at a participating ‘Visited’ organisation
  • A ‘Visited’ institution permits members of other organisations to use its internet facilities whilst on site using their 'Home' institution credentials.

The University of Nottingham participates as both a ‘Home’ and ‘Visited’ institution. 'Visited' experience typically allows internate access only.  

Visitors from other participating institutions

To connect to the eduroam service whilst at The University of Nottingham, please ensure that your device has been set up correctly before your visit. Your local Campus IT support team should be able to assist with the required configuration.

  • You may need to enter your username and password in order to connect to the eduroam service if these credentials are not already cached on your device.
  • The user credentials supplied by your device must identify your home institution e.g. would identify user xyz from university abc.
  • If you encounter problems, please contact your home institution for assistance.

If your institution does not participate in eduroam, then you can use the UoN-guest wireless service.

Whilst at a participating site, you are bound by our Code of Practice and the acceptable use policy of the site you are visiting. Failure to adhere could result in disciplinary procedures.
The eduroam(UK) policy can be found on the JANET website.
