eduroam (education roaming) is a secure, international roaming service that allows users access to a wireless network at an eduroam-enabled institution using their credentials from their home institution.  


Prior to traveling to other eduroam-enabled institutions, K-Staters can use the eduroam network to setup and test their connection. Be aware that the eduroam network has the same access restrictions as the KSU Guest network. KSU Wireless should remain your preferred network while on the K-State campus.
