Purdue University supports the EDUROAM Wi-Fi network. EDUROAM is available at hundreds of institutions throughout the world and once you connect to EDUROAM, you should, in theory, be able to roam across institutions seamlessly without needing to manually reconnect your devices at each institution.
However, there are a couple of things to consider when connecting to EDUROAM:
- When you initially authenticate, use your firstname.lastname@example.org as your username (do not simply use your username alone).
- If you have an “alternate” email address, do not use that. Instead, use your Purdue “alias” or username + “@purdue.edu”
- When you get to the other institution, if you are not able to connect automatically, it is possible that you may need to “forget” the EDUROAM network and then re-add it. Be sure to log in with email@example.com.
To connect to EDUROAM at Purdue, simply look for EDUROAM in the list of available wireless networks and select it. You will then be asked to enter your username (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) + regular Purdue password (not multi-factor). After authenticating, you will likely be asked to “Trust” a certificate which is normal and OK to do. Note: if your Windows computer asks if you want to “Use my Windows user account” do not check that checkbox and proceed with your email@example.com.
