eduroam – Connecting Aotearoa

eduroam provides simple, easy, secure connectivity from thousands of hotspots across more than 100 countries.

About eduroam

eduroam (which is short for ‘education roaming’) is the secure, worldwide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain internet connectivity at their campus or offices and when visiting other participating institutions. eduroam was developed and is maintained by GÉANT, the pan-Europe research and education network.

In Aotearoa, eduroam is managed by REANNZ, the country’s advanced network for researchers and educators. Through eduroam, we connect up thousands of people across the sector.

How it works

eduroam allows any user from a participating site to get network access. This means that students, researchers or staff can use single sign-on and move seamlessly between different member sites without having to log on again.

The system uses a network of servers owned by participating institutions and the National Research and Education Networks (NRENs), of which REANNZ is New Zealand’s national network provider.

Security is top of mind for us and our users. We keep user credentials secure – they are not shared with any site a user visits. Instead, these details they are forwarded to the user's home institution, where they can be verified and validated.

Where eduroam is available

Having started in Europe, eduroam has gained momentum throughout the research and education community and is now available in over 100 countries – from campuses to coffee shops.

In Aotearoa, eduroam’s reputation is quickly growing. It is already available at Crown Research Institutes and many tertiary education institutions.
