eduroam is a federated network access service developed for universities and colleges around the world to share internet access. When you travel to a university that is a member of eduroam, you can join the 'eduroam' wi-fi network and use encrypted internet access for free. To learn more about eduroam, check out our FAQ.

Follow these directions no matter where you are connecting to eduroam from, whether it's the EWU campus or another eduroam-participating institution.


Open Wi-Fi 'Settings' for your Android device. On most Android devices, you may do this by swiping down from the top left of your screen and then touching and holding the WiFi icon. You can also access this screen by touching the cog in the lower right, selecting Network & Internet and then Wi-Fi. Sometimes, the cog is labeled 'Settings.'
