eduroam, an overview

eduroam (education roaming) is a federation providing wireless access to users of universities and research centres.

eduroam enables students, teachers and personnel of our university to connect to the Wi-Fi network of all partner universities and research centres using Unimore credentials.

Conversely, visitors of other member institutions may connect to unimore Wi-Fi by using the credentials of their place of origin.

Access to eduroam is possible thanks to the enhancement of the Wi-Fi network carried out by Servizi Informatici Reti e Sistemi.


eduroam username

Eduroam username is the one used for unimore (i.e. the username for logging in to the unimore webmail ) followed by “@unimore.it”.

For instance, unimore username "user_id" coincides with eduroam username "user_id@unimore.it".

Students accessing esse3 with username "100000" will use the username "100000@unimore.it” for eduroam.

The username used for eduroam is not unimore email address.


Instructions for notebooks, Android and iPhone devices

An auto-configuration tool is available for notebooks, Android devices and iPhones: https://cat.eduroam.org .

Make sure you download the version for UniMORE users and for the specific release of your operating system.

You will have to run the cat on your system and configure it with eduroam username and your own password.

The cat installs the digital certificates that make the communication with the authentication system secure. This requires users to set a PIN on Android devices.


Instructions for Windows phone devices or for manual installation
