eduroam is a secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.
eduroam allows students and staff from participating institutions to securely connect to the Internet for free on their personal laptops or mobile devices, not only on their own campus but also when visiting other participating institutions providing a 'Visited' service.
eduroam provides two service types that each institution can support; Home and Visited:
Southampton Solent University is providing both a Home and Visited service on a trial basis.
Solent students and staff will be able to access the Internet for free on their personal laptops and mobile devices on campus and from any other eduroam-participating institution in the UK and abroad providing a Visited service. When using eduroam you will only have access to University resources that are normally available via the Internet.
University guests (for example, those attending a conference or an open day) can use eduroam if they are from an eduroam-participating institution in the UK and abroad that offers a Home service. Otherwise, accounts will need to be requested for Solent's standard wifi network, SolentNet.
To access eduroam for the first time you can use the JoinNow service (Android and Kindle users can download the JoinNow app). Manual connection instructions can be accessed from the links at the bottom of this page, but in order to gain a secure connection to the network the JoinNow service should be used as the primary connection method.
If you are accessing eduroam from another institution which offers a Visited service:
Please note that eduroam use should be consistent with:
In line with Southampton Solent University’s ICT Usage Policy, ICT performs automated application/content filtering on all access to the Internet from its networks. ICT use third-party categorisation services to block applications and web sites which match the following categories:
As with any automated categorisation process, some applications and web sites may be incorrectly matched and blocked. Conversely, it is not guaranteed that all applications and web sites that match the criteria defined above will be blocked.
Once the initial set-up has been completed you can travel to any location where eduroam is provided and use it for free on your personal laptop or mobile devices.
You won’t need to enter your information again at other locations.
