Seamless Wi-Fi access for research and education around the world​.


​​​​e​​duroam​ (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. eduroam allows students, researchers and staff​ to seamlessly access internet connectivity when within range of a hotspot , whether they're moving across campus or visiting other participating institutions​.

With benefits for users and for their campus IT departments, eduroam saves time and facilitates active and enduring collaboration between countries and institutions.


eduroam supports research and education by providing:

  • roaming broadband in more than 90 territories worldwide;

  • access at thousands of locations, with one ​password;

  • secure and privacy-preserving technology;

  • reciprocal service that is free-of-charge to users.

GÉANT and eduroam

eduroam was pioneered by the GÉANT research and educati​​on networking community in Europe. The GÉANT (​GN4) Project works together with relevant industry and standardisation groups to find and share solutions related to eduroam technology and security.

​​​​​eduroam in ​​​​Europe

The European eduroam service is a large-scale collaboration between hundreds of institutions, the majority of which own and operate the service’s infrastructure. The national and international coordination of this infrastructure is undertaken by the Roaming Operators (ROs) and a central eduroam Operational Team that is funded by the GÉANT Project.


Global eduroam

The GÉANT organisation coordinates and supports the Global eduroam Governance Committee (GeGC), which sets technical and organisational standards for the service and authorises compliant ROs to provide eduroam around the world.
