eduroam (education roaming) is a secure service that allows students, faculty, and staff to obtain internet connectivity when visiting other participating institutions across the U.S. and around the globe.
How it works for St. Thomas members
When a St. Thomas member visits another eduroam participating university (eg. University of Minnesota, MIT, etc.), they will be able to login to that campus' eduroam wi-fi network using their full St. Thomas username (email@example.com) and password. Note: If St. Thomas members do not regularly visit other institutions, please use the UST network while on campus instead of eduroam.
How it works for visitors to St. Thomas
Visitors to St. Thomas who have eduroam accounts with their home universities can access our campus wi-fi through an encyrpted connection. When selecting a wi-fi to connect to, visitors simply select the eduroam wi-fi network and login using their username and password from their home institution. While the current UST-Open network provides all visitors to campus with internet access, the eduroam network will offer an encrypted wi-fi connection to those in the eduroam consortium without having to re-authenticate every 24 hours.

NOTE: St. Thomas members are encouraged to continue using the UST wi-fi network while they are on the St. Thomas campus for full access to university resources through an encrypted connection.
