eduroam is coming to CSI…

eduroam allows all City University of New York students, faculty, and staff to take advantage of free and secure wireless service when visiting an eduroam (education roaming) member university and allows visitors from member universities access when visiting the College of Staten Island.

The eduroam network is available at participating institutions in over 67 territories throughout the world. A full list of participating institutions in the US can be found on the eduroam-US web page. A list of worldwide participants can be found here. To use eduroam, you will need a WiFi (802.11b/g/n/ac) enabled device such as a laptop, tablet, or smartphone.

What is eduroam?
Any user (faculty/staff/student) that is part of the eduroam network will be able to login to our wireless network with their home institution’s credentials. This means a “visitor” from another higher educational institution (e.g. CUNY, NYU, Rutgers) can login to CSI’s wireless network as long as their home institution participates in eduroam.

Does this apply to guests who are not part of eduroam visiting the College (e.g. vendors)?
No, these individuals would still need to use guest access when logging into our network.

What will users have access to when logging into eduroam?
eduroam is to be treated as a guest wireless network separate from our own internal networks. As such all users will have access to the internet and all CSI resources that are available from off campus such as the library proxy services while connected to the network.

  1. Before traveling to other eduroam-participating institutions, CUNY faculty, staff, and students should configure their device using the installer here.
  2. Afterward, select the eduroam wireless network on your device’s wireless connection settings and login using the following credentials:
