eduroam

Michigan Tech is a member of eduroam, a wireless network that lets active faculty, staff, students, alumni, and former employees (including Emeritus) securely connect to the Internet when they travel to other eduroam partner schools. Eduroam shows up on your computers and devices as the wireless SSID “eduroam.” Your Michigan Tech account name and password are used to connect to the network. Likewise, visitors from participating schools can log on to the eduroam network at Michigan Tech with their school credentials.

You can find a list of participating schools on the eduroam web site. If you’re planning to travel to one of these schools, you can set up your laptop, tablet, or mobile device here on campus. Directions are below, but if you need help, you can also always call us at 906-487-1111 or email it-help@mtu.edu.
