NAU has joined and implemented eduroam, (education roaming)
the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international
research and education community.
allows travelers from eduroam institutions to gain secure wireless (WiFi) network
access using user account information maintained by their home institution. This benefits visiting faculty, academics traveling for conferences and
collaborative work, study abroad students, visitors attending NCAA activities,
and even regional academic exchange.
should see a new wireless network (SSID), eduroam, available wherever wireless (WiFi)
access is available at NAU except in residence halls. Visitors from other eduroam institutions can access this secure network while at NAU. NAU faculty,
staff, and students should continue to use the NAU network while at NAU but can
now access the secure eduroam network while visiting institutions that have implemented
eduroam such as Arizona State University and the University of Arizona using their NAU user account information.
the number one eduroam support rule: always contact your home institution’s
support services first (For NAU Students
please call the ITS Student Technology Center at 928-523-9294. For NAU Faculty
and Staff please call the ITS Solution Center at 928-523-1511). More information can be
