Connecting to Secure Wireless (eduroam)

Posted February 15th, 2012 at 4:05 pm.

Bryn Mawr College provides two wireless networks — eduroam and a Guest network.

We encourage all Tri-College community members to use eduroam, a secure wireless network offered by research and educational communities around the world which provides visitors from other communities with free, secure wireless during their travels. Because Bryn Mawr College has joined the eduroam confederation, community members who are traveling can connect to any eduroam network worldwide using their Bryn Mawr College email address and password. Visitors to campus from other participating schools will also be able to access eduroam here with their credentials from their home institution. For more information on eduroam, please reference www.eduroam.org or www.eduroamus.org. A full list of eduroam locations can be found here.

Bryn Mawr’s Guest wireless is an open, unsecured network for the causal use and convenience of campus guests and to which you can (at your own risk) connect devices which may not be compatible with our secured network.  Please note that this network limits what functions may be performed on it.

Connecting to eduroam:

  • To connect a personal device, select eduroam from the list of wireless networks
  • Use your full email address (e.g. username@brynmawr.edu, username@haverford.edu) and password to connect
  • If you are using a College computer, it should already be configured to connect to eduroam automatically

If you’re having trouble connecting, please visit the Help Desk on the first floor of Canaday Library, or contact us at 610-526-7440 or help@brynmawr.edu.
