eduroam — secure Wi-Fi


The eduroam wire­less net­work ser­vice allows WiFi access for staff/​students and vis­i­tors to Not­ting­ham Col­lege from oth­er par­tic­i­pat­ing institutions.

How do I connect?

To con­nect to the eduroam ser­vice whilst at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, please ensure that your device has been set up cor­rect­ly before your vis­it. Your home insti­tu­tion IT Sup­port ser­vice should be able to assist with the required configuration.

  1. Go to Wi-Fi set­tings on your device 
  2. Select the Wi-Fi net­work eduroam’
  3. When prompt­ed, enter your Not­ting­ham Col­lege user­name fol­lowed by your password
  4. Accept any mes­sage regard­ing certificates/​trust if prompt­ed by your device

Vis­i­tors will need to enter their home insti­tu­tion user­name and pass­word in order to con­nect to the eduroam ser­vice if these cre­den­tials are not already cached on your device. The user cre­den­tials sup­plied by your device must iden­ti­fy your home insti­tu­tion e.g. jane.​smith@​examplecollege.​ac.​uk would iden­ti­fy user jane.smith from Exam­ple Col­lege.

You should only need to authen­ti­cate once using your home insti­tu­tion cre­den­tials and after that you’ll auto­mat­i­cal­ly con­nect to eduroam every time. You will need to repeat these steps if you change your col­lege password.

If you encounter any prob­lems with eduroam Wi-Fi at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, con­tact our IT helpdesk on 0115 912 5555.

​What is the eduroam wireless network?

The eduroam ser­vice also allows users who are work­ing away from their home insti­tu­tion to use local Wi-Fi facil­i­ties if their home insti­tu­tion is also part of the eduroam network. 

An organ­i­sa­tion can take part in the eduroam ser­vice through being a Home’ insti­tu­tion, a Vis­it­ed’ insti­tu­tion, or both: 

  • a Home’ insti­tu­tion pro­vides authen­ti­ca­tion for its users when they wish to access inter­net facil­i­ties at a par­tic­i­pat­ing Vis­it­ed’ organisation
  • a Vis­it­ed’ insti­tu­tion per­mits mem­bers of oth­er organ­i­sa­tions to use its inter­net facil­i­ties whilst on site using their Home’ insti­tu­tion credentials 

Not­ting­ham Col­lege par­tic­i­pates as a Home’ and Vis­it­ed’ institution.
