eduroam – worldwide roaming access service

The reading break is around the corner. If you plan to visit other educational institutions during that week, you might be able to access their wireless network using your McGill Username and Password. This privilege comes from “eduroam”, a roaming wireless authentication service worldwide. McGill University is a member of eduroam, which enables its students, faculty and staff to access the wireless network at other eduroam participating institutions using the same credentials they use at McGill University. The detail of configuring this service is here. If you need to use McGill Library’s electronic resources when you are there, you will also need VPN or EZproxy after logging onto the network. Below is a short video about eduroam.
