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 Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply opening their mobile device. Cape Breton University is a member of the Eduroam community. In Canada, the program is operated by CANARIE.
What does this mean for you as a student or employee of CBU?
When you visit another institution, notice if the wifi options include Eduroam. Select this option and enter your CBU user name and password. Your CBU credentials allow you to access the internet. Similarly, visitors to CBU from other Eduroam institutions can access the internet using their home credentials.
Eduroam is currently available in more than 65 countries worldwide. For more information on EDUROAM, visit http://www.canarie.ca/identity/eduroam/
