What is eduroam?

eduroam (education roaming) is a service provided via JANET which enables students, researchers and staff to securely access the internet whilst visiting other participating institutions, using the username and login provided by their home organisation.


Does Keele University support eduroam?

The eduroam service is available across the Keele University campus to local students and staff and visiting academics. The service is provided by JANET and only available to WiFi enabled devices. Wired eduroam access, the ability to logon to a wired university point or a university managed PC, is not currently available.

Keele University provides both home and visitor access to eduroam, subject to the University acceptable use policy and the JANET eduroam policy

For visitors, the set-up and preparation for using the service should be done before you arrive here.  You should contact your home organisation IT support to enable access if you have not already done so, and you can check whether your organisation is participating at the JANET website

Please note that the eduroam WiFi profile must be removed from your PC when you are no longer a member of Keele University.
