New eduroam Wireless Speaks Many Languages

Information Technology Services is pleased to announce a new wireless option on campus (“eduroam”) that provides convenient, secure network access not only on campus, but also when visiting participating academic institutions around the world.
Eduroam, a reciprocal service available in more than 70 countries in 17,000 locations, is available now for W&L students and employees: see http://wireless.wlu.edu.
After devices are configured for eduroam (logging in using your W&L email address and password), they will automatically connect to eduroam at W&L and any location worldwide where eduroam is in operation. Employees and students at other institutions where eduroam is in use may in turn use their institutional credentials to connect to eduroam while visiting W&L. For a full list of participating institutions, see https://www.eduroam.org/where/. (Select the country, then view members).
ITS will continue to operate the current secure wireless service, WLUsec, through the end of 2016 to allow time for a smooth transition to eduroam. WLUsec will be retired on Dec. 31, 2016 and no longer offered as an option for wireless connectivity.
Connecting to eduroam is a quick, one-time procedure; please update your devices when convenient. See http://wireless.wlu.edu for connection information, and contact the Information Desk (x4357 or help@wlu.edu) as needed for assistance.
