  • eduroam (education roaming) is a secured WiFi network service that allows students, faculty and staff to use their home institution’s WiFi credentials to access WiFi network services, when visiting other eduroam participating institutions—without having to set up a guest account.
  • eduroam is offered in more than 50 countries throughout Europe and Asia, as well as the United States*, and Canada.
  • With hundreds of thousands of WiFi access points sharing a common SSID, eduroam acts as one large, world-wide, wireless hotspot.

If you are on another campus (not Bucknell) and you see the eduroam wireless network, enter your whole Bucknell email address in the username field and your Bucknell password in the password field.
