Connect to eduroam
Duke students, faculty and staff can access the eduroam (education roaming) service to securely access the Internet when visiting other participating institutions worldwide using their Duke NetID and password.
The eduroam service provides encrypted wireless network access, without the need to gain guest credentials. Users are required to log in to eduroam. Visitors to Duke from other participating institutions can use their credentials from their home institution to log in to eduroam while at Duke. They do not need to register as a guest or obtain any Duke credentials in order to use eduroam.
To use the eduroam service at another institution, Duke users should configure their machine for eduroam access while on the Duke campus, then test eduroam access before departing. A (VPN) connection may be necessary for access to some Duke resources while traveling.
Consult these technical specifications for configuration.
Set up your laptop, tablet or smartphone for eduroam before you travel. Detailed setup instructions are available online, but for many devices, setup is just a two-step process:
- From Duke's campus, browse the wireless networks available to you and connect to the eduroam network.
- When asked, enter your Duke NetID (in the form firstname.lastname@example.org) as your username/identity, and provide your Duke password.
Some devices require more set-up steps. Get instructions for your specific device.
Be sure to use Duke's VPN service as well for wider access to Duke online resources when traveling.
Visitors to Duke from other participating institutions can use their credentials from their home institution to log in to eduroam while at Duke.
