What is eduroam?

As described on eduroam.org, “eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.” Through MVCC’s affiliation with eduroam, you can connect to the eduroam wireless network at participating institutions, worldwide, simply by logging in with your MVCC email address and password.

What access is provided?

eduroam provides basic internet access only.  

How do I connect to eduroam?

Option 1: The link to connect is https://cat.eduroam.org

Option 2: Download the app on your mobile device by searching for EduroamCAT

Once you have set up eduroam, your computer or device should then find it automatically whenever you are visiting a participating institution.

That’s correct. For each computer or device that you want to use on the eduroam network, you should only need to connect for the first time at one participating institution, and it will work on that configured computer or device at every participating institution you visit.
