WiFi eduroam

    Description:

    What is eduroam?

    eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.  It is the primary wireless network serving the Trent community and academic visitors. 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 laptop.

    Trent users have free access to WiFi Internet services provided at 5,886 eduroam institutions worldwide.

    What does this mean to you?

    When visiting participating eduroam institutions, you are able to join their "eduroam" WiFi network by logging in with your Trent e-mail address and password. This gives you access to the Internet and depending on local policies at the visited institution, you may also have access to additional resources (for example printers) at your disposal.

    How do I connect?

    Scan or click on the QR code below, answer the configuration prompts using the drop-down buttons (country,  institution, user group (service) you wish to connect to (eduroam OR RezNet), and your particular device). It will identify the correct installer. Download the installer and follow the next set of prompts to complete the setup.

    Note: 

     You must do this for each device with which you wish to connect to either of Trent's networks.

    What does this mean for visiting lecturers, researchers, staff and students?

    When a lecturer, researcher, staff, or student visits us from an eduroam member institution, they are able to join our "eduroam" WiFi network (now visible on Trent's network) by logging in with their home institution's credentials.
    Users of the eduroam network must abide by Trent University's Computing Code of Ethics guidelines as well as any guidelines set out by the home/visiting institution.
