Announcing Eduroam Wifi access for Champlain College

The Information Systems team is happy to announce the availability of eduroam to the Champlain community. Eduroam is a global wireless network service for research and education. An eligible organization (research organization or education-related organization) can provide users (students, researchers, staff and faculty) with wireless access at participating institutions through the use of their home institution credentials. The service has two main components:

  1. It offers Champlain College students, faculty, and staff access to authenticated and encrypted Wifi access when on the campuses of the thousands of other college campuses in the country that support eduroam. Locally Middlebury, St Michael’s, and UVM support eduroam.
  2. It gives students, faculty, and staff of other eduroam enabled institutions access to an authenticated and encrypted Wifi network while they are visiting Champlain College.

Getting Connected
It is easy to connect to eduroam – when visiting an institution that supports eduroam, you simply need to enter your Champlain College username (including the domain name, champlain.edu or mymail.champlain.edu) and your Champlain College password. Once you have entered and saved your login credentials on your device, you will be able to automatically connect to the eduroam network whenever it is available.

Access For eduroam Visitors
Visiting students, faculty, and staff from participating eduroam organizations are able to securely access the eduroam wireless network on the Champlain College campus using their home organization’s credentials. This network is an enhanced alternative to ChamplainGuest for individuals coming from another eduroam campus, as there there is no time limit for accessing eduroam.
