eduroam network access

What is eduroam ?

The mobility service for the RENATER community (eduroam) aims to provide staff at higher education and research institutions with secure wireless internet access whenever they are at other eduroam member institutions. It covers most European countries and some countries in the Asia-Pacific region.

Users must use the login credentials (username and password) that they use at their home institution in all eduroam network member institutions.

Hcéres has been a member of the eduroam network since 2016. Users must comply with the eduroam and Renater charters.
