Eduroam

eduroam - international roaming for education

The 'eduroam' service allows University staff to use Wi-Fi services at thousands of participating sites worldwide. This service has just recently been made available for UHI Students. Unfortunately, we are not able to allow FE students access to this service.

Eduroam is now available for UHI and Academic Partner staff and UHI students both at UHI and at participating sites worldwide. To connect to eduroam just enter your userid in the format 'username@uhi.ac.uk' when prompted, and your normal password. You must setup and test your Eduroam connection at a UHI site before travelling to another Eduroam institution.

See the Eduroam Guide.pdf for detailed instructions. In the event of problems please contact the UHI Servicedesk on or phone 01463 279150.

Smartphone / tablet users may find the "eduroam companion" app useful for finding eduroam-enabled sites when travelling. Download it from the Apple StorePlay Store for your device.
