The University of Georgia is an eduroam participant. Eduroam is a secure roaming access wireless network available to any student, faculty and staff at participating eduroam institutions in the U.S. and abroad.


eduroam is available to all UGA students, faculty and staff on campus with the exception of residence halls. 


eduroam allows students, faculty and staff of participating eduroam schools to get wireless access across institutions using their school's credentials.


For example, a UGA faculty member visiting at Clemson University, which is also an eduroam participant, could use their UGA credentials (MyID@uga.edu) to log in to Clemson's wireless network on campus. Likewise, a Clemson faculty member could do the same with their credentials when they visit the UGA campus.


To access eduroam, UGA students, faculty and staff must provide their full UGA credentials with their MyID followed by "@uga.edu" (example: YourMyID@uga.edu).
When a MyID password is updated, it must also be updated for eduroam access.


eduroam provides a list of current U.S. participants and international participants.

eduroam is also available at the Gwinnett, Griffin and Health Sciences campuses.
