Connecting to the eduroam wireless network

Overview

eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community. To join eduroam, all you need is an 802.1x compatible OS (Windows, Mac OS X, iOS, or Android Device) and your UT credentials. 

Make sure to join the eduroam network on UT's campus before you travel. This will allow OIT to assist you if you encounter difficulties, and will increase the security of the system by verifying UT's encryption certificate locally. UT faculty, staff, and students must still register the device on the UT network.  Guests using eduroam will not need to register their computer.
