Connecting to Eduroam

Introduction

 

eduroam is a Wi-Fi network at St. Cloud State University and many other universities in the United States and abroad. St. Cloud State students, faculty and staff can use it on most other Minnesota State campuses and many campuses across the nation using their StarID and password. 

Visitors from other eduroam-participating colleges and universities can access eduroam at St. Cloud State using the usernames and passwords from their home institutions.

Before traveling to another eduroam-participating institution, we recommend signing onto eduroam at your home campus with each device you will be using, to be sure everything works.

St. Cloud State faculty, staff and students should continue to use HuskyNet Secure while on campus. If you have recently visited another institution, used eduroam, and are now having trouble accessing resources on our campus make sure that you are connected to HuskyNet Secure and not eduroam.

 

Instructions

 

First time connection

You may need to use the eduroam configuration assistant the first time you use a device to connect (you won’t have to do this again). Some devices, especially those running Windows older than Windows 10, may require the use of eduroam’s configuration assistant to make eduroam work. Note that this requires administrative privileges on your device.

  6. Go to your device’s Wi-Fi setting and select eduroam
  7. Your device is connected to eduroam and will automatically connect at eduroam-participating institutions.
