eduroam Service

eduroam logo

eduroam allows users visiting participating institutions to access network resources using the logon credentials from their own institution. It gives users guest access at other academic locations without the need for guest accounts.

The level of network access a visitor has is set by the host university and may vary from one university to the next. More information about the eduroam service can be found on the eduroam website.

All participants (institutions and individual users) are bound by the Janet Roaming Policy. Please also refer to the University Acceptable Use Policy (IT facilities). 

Information for visitors to Cardiff University sites

If you are visiting Cardiff University from a participating eduroam institution, you can connect to the eduroam wireless network. 

To access eduroam, you will need a username and password from your home institution. You should then automatically be able to access the eduroam network when you arrive at Cardiff University. 

The eduroam network can be accessed across Cardiff University. The service is available via laptops and wireless-enabled devices only. 

All alumni and visitors should abide by the Cardiff University Regulations and JANET Acceptable Use Policy
