WiFi network for Staff, Students and Visitors

eduroam (education roaming) is a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

What is eduroam?

eduroam allows students and staff from participating institutions to obtain free Internet connectivity. Connect once at College and you can seamlessly roam across campus and when visiting other participating institutions by simply switching on your device.

eduroam is available to all members of Wakefield College; both staff and students.

Connecting to eduroam is easy – when selecting the eduroam option from a list of available WiFi networks, you will be prompted for your College username and password. For more information see the section connecting to eduroam.

Wherever you see eduroam appear in your list of WiFi networks, you can get online.


How does it work?

eduroam’s secure and privacy-preserving technology means that there is no need to enter usernames and passwords through insecure web browser forms. Your device will identify a valid eduroam access point and log-in automatically. Your password is never shared with any of the access points.

Your password for your online identity is provided to you by your ‘home’ institution – where you are enrolled in study or are employed.
