Eduroam Logo

Eduroam is an initiative from TERENA which facilitates mobility among european researchers and students by offering 'wifi' connectivity in a series of institutions abroad which have joined the network. In this way, users from Eduroam participating institutions can access the Internet through the wireless networks of all the participating institutions.

The process of a user connecting to the wireless network of the visited institution is similar to connecting to his home wifi network: the username and password used for authentication are the same to his/her home network, the only difference might be the network access method.

BSC-CNS participates in the Eduroam project offering access to their own users and users coming from other participating institutions, under coordination from CSUC (IT services provider for catalan universities), which constitutes the technical and administrative link between participating institutions in the Eduroam project.
