eduroam Network

eduroambanner  

The EUI is a member of eduroam, an international federation of academic institutions which allows its users to visit other organisations and gain access to Internet using the same login credentials (username and password) of their home institution.

The level of access (Web, E-mail, Library Catalogue, etc.) a visitor has, is determined by the host organisation.

The level of access to your home university's IT resources (VPN, Intranet, etc.) depends as well on the host organisation.

More information about the eduroam network can be found at www.eduroam.org.

 

Information on using eduroam:

EUI Staff and Researchers visiting another Institution

  • before visiting an institution, check whether they participate in eduroam. A map of members is available on eduroam's site;
  • you must configure your device at the EUI before leaving the Institute;
  • the host institution may restrict your ability to access some of EUI's IT services. Please check the institution's website for details of access level available;
  • IMPORTANT: Login details for eduroam differ from standard EUI ones by having a different domain:
     

    Username = your_EUI_username

    Password = your_EUI_password

    Domain = iue.it (instead of iuedom)
     

    Depending on your OS and connection client, the domain can be added in a specific "Domain" field (if available) or (if missing) it can be appended to the username in the form:

     
    username@iue.it

     
    Please Note: this is NOT your EUI's E-mail address and/or you should NOT use your EUI's E-mail address to authenticate to eduroam!

Please find below some hints which may help you solving authentication problems whilst at the EUI:

  • EUI uses WPA2 Enterprise (WPA2/AES) encryption: if your institution uses WEP and/or WPA/TKIP encryption for its eduroam network, you must change the encryption method accordingly;
  • you must include your institution's eduroam domain name when authenticating. Please note that this may vary from your E-mail domain or usual login domain!
  • access is restricted to one simultaneous connection per account;
  • if your OS/device is unable to automatically configure the connection for you or stops working, you may need to re-configure it manually. Do so by using the provided connection details;
  • for EUI members: please ensure your authentication domain is correctly set to iue.it and/or login is correctly set to your_EUI_username@iue.it (e.g. jsmith@iue.it).
