What is eduroam?
eduroam is a secured wireless network that allows students, faculty and staff to use their home institution’s credentials (for Penn affiliates, their PennKey) to access wireless network services, when visiting other eduroam participating institutions without having to set up a guest account.
Members of the Penn Community can use eduroam as their primary WiFi instead of AirPennNet.
Note: You must be configured for eduroam on Penn’s campus before travelling to another institution. Institutions have their own eduroam onboarding process, so the default option might not work for Penn affiliates. More info on Penn’s eduroam guide.
Configuring your device for eduroam
Penn affiliates who wish to configure eduroam on their wireless devices can download an installation wizard from:
Downloaded the SecureW2 Wizard for eduroam and run the application.
To login to eduroam, use YourPennKey@upenn.edu as your username. (For example, if your Pennkey was “johndoe” you would log into eduroam as “email@example.com”). Use your PennKey password for the password.
Visitors to Penn from other institutions that participate in eduroam should obtain configuration instructions and installation software from their home institution. The Penn-specific installer may not correctly configure devices from other institutions.
If you have any questions about setting eduroam up or need any assistance before you plan on using eduroam please contact ITS at firstname.lastname@example.org
