Visitors from organisations in the eduroam federation

eduroam stands for education roaming and is a federation of institutions that offers internet connectivity to the users of all other member institutions.  Visitors at the ICR can use this service if their home institution is an eduroam member.

The eduroam(UK) Service was developed to enable users from any participant site in the UK to use guest networking services at any other participant site to access the Internet or external services provided by their home site.  For example, eduroam(UK) can let you use the network for tasks such as email access, web browsing and use of VPN services without having to make prior arrangements for a guest account or paying for commercial services. Instead, your familiar credentials authenticate you to educational network services both across the country and internationally.

The eduroam(UK) service forms part of the eduroam federation which includes participants in many other countries – extending usability of the service throughout Europe and around the world
