The eduroam wireless network is a secure world-wide roaming service developed for the international research and education community.

Not only can you use eduroam to connect wirelessly at the University, you can also visit any participating education institution or medical facility and access network services using your UofA login credentials.

To connect to University resources, such as your U: or S: drive, or internal websites and applications, you will need to connect via our Virtual Private Network (VPN) tool. This does not apply to SA Public Hospitals or SA Health locations. See more information below.
