Peyton Shepard

University of Alabama students, faculty and staff can now access Wi-Fi on campus, and on 250 other U.S. campuses as well as hundreds more abroad, through eduroam, according to the UA Office of Information Technology website. Eduroam is a roaming access service that allows the use of UA credentials to access any eduroam hotspot. 

To use eduroam, students should connect to the “eduroam” wireless network on their computer or mobile device and enter their myBama email and password. When using eduroam on other campuses, the UA IT Service Desk must be contacted to troubleshoot any issues if you are using UA credentials. Students can contact the IT Service Desk at itsd@ua.edu or (205) 348-5555.
