eduroam

Overview

For faculty, staff, and students who travel to other universities, The New School has joined eduroam. Eduroam is a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community that allows New School faculty, staff, and students to use the wireless networks at other member institutions all over the world. When visiting another member institution, if you see the ‘eduroam’ SSID, connect to it and sign in with your New School email address (“yournetid@newschool.edu”) and your NetID password to obtain access.

Locally, New York University (NYU) and Columbia University offer eduroam access.

Visitors to the New School campus from other eduroam member institutions can access the ‘eduroam’ network at The New School by signing in with their home institution username, including the “@institution” part (e.g., student@nyu.edu) and home institution password.

Use

For the traveler: eduroam provides per-user, per-session encrypted network access for visitors from participating institutions, without the need to gain guest credentials on arrival to an eduroam enabled location. The connectivity is instantaneous and the infrastructure is authenticated by the user. Study abroad students can join thousands of eduroam hotspots without any hassle or any data roaming charges.

For the institution: eduroam removes the administrative steps required to provision visitors from other educational institutions. Access between networks from R&E institutions is negotiated once during the federation process and for all members of participating institutions. The eduroam network addresses CALEA requirements for visitors from other schools.
