What is eduroam?
eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.
eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity from universities, research centres, academies, schools, and other research and education institutions (and even some coffee shops!) by simply opening their device.
Is it safe?
eduroam is based on the most secure encryption and authentication standards in existence today. Its security by far exceeds typical commercial hotspots.
User credentials are kept secure because eduroam does not share them with the site you’re visiting. Instead they are forwarded to the user’s home institution, where they can be verified and validated.
Is it free?
Thanks to global agreement, the eduroam Wi-Fi roaming service is free of charge to users.
Who can use it?
Students, faculty, researchers and staff who have EEE Accounts.
Where can I use eduroam?
Whether you’re moving across campus or spending time studying or working at another research and education institution, eduroam gives you seamless Internet connectivity.
More than 10,000 eduroam hotspots are available at universities, research centres, academies, schools, and other research and education institutions in more than 90 territories around the world. As eduroam grows, more and more hotspots are appearing in additional places such as libraries, museums and public spaces such as railway stations and coffee shops.
In the Philippines, DOST ASTI, as the main identity provider in the country, is the first institution to deploy the service. The EEE Institute deployed the service earlier this year, and it is also being tested by the UP Diliman Computer Center for the whole campus. Our team from PCARI-PRIME Project is also working with 12 other state universities across the Philippines in deploying their own eduroam service.

When can I use it?
You can actually use it NOW, as long as you have an EEE account.
Will I use the same password as my EEE Account?
No, as of now we are issuing temporary passwords for the eduroam service. We have sent an email containing your credentials to the service to your EEE account. But we are developing solutions to migrate our authentication in the Google Suite, to match our internal login authentication. This is in line with our plans to migrate to Single Sign-On (SSO) on every service within the EEE Institute.
