Eduroam Network

EDU Credentials | Global Access

Eduroam logo

Eduroam is a global network service that allows WiFi access using existing higher education credentials at participating universities. As a participant, the University of Mississippi invites campus visitors from other eduroam enabled universities to choose the 'eduroam' network and log-in with their home university credentials. Additional infomation about the network can be found in our technews article.

UM students and employees can also use their WebID to access all 'eduroam' networks provided by other eduroam enabled universities. You must enter your Email in the full form of 'WebID@olemiss.edu' to connect. If you are unable to connect and are sure your credentials are correct, please contact their campus technical support for assistance. Be aware of any policies of the university you are visiting for any local network restrictions.

The 'eduroam' connection should only need to be setup once on a device. After this it will automatically connect whenever it is in range of another eduroam enabled location. If you are unable to connect and are sure your username and password are correct, please contact the IT Helpdesk for assistance.

Notes: Eduroam should only be used when you are a guest at another participating university. A WebID will not connect to the 'eduroam' network on the UM campus. And all campus visitors are bound by the Appropriate Use Policy.
