Eduroam is a secure access service for members of the educational and research communities. It allows individuals from a member organization to securely access network services while visiting other member organizations using login credentials from their home organization without making special arrangements.

Using Eduroam, Laurier staff and faculty can obtain Internet connectivity when visiting participating institutions by simply logging onto their computer or wireless device with their Laurier usernames and passwords.

Visitors to Laurier's Waterloo and Brantford campuses, and to Laurier's Faculty of Social Work building in Kitchener, can also access the Internet using their home credentials if their institution is a member of the Eduroam network.

A list of participating Eduroam institutions is available at

Please note that if you have not logged into your Novell account using the Novell client at least once since April 23rd 2012 you must take this step before you will be able to connect to the wireless "eduroam" SSID. This step is needed to fully initialize the necessary security settings. If you do not have access to a system with the Novell client, you can use a machine in any public access lab or visit the Service Desk in BA304 or the Student Service Desk in the Torque Room area off the Concourse.
