Visitors to UWA need to ensure that their home institution is part of the eduroam federation and that institution has given them the required privileges.
eduroam, or education roaming, allows staff and students from participating universities to access the local institution's wireless network access and the internet using their standard username and password just as they do at their home institution.
A wireless-enabled device, such as a laptop computer or a smart phone, is required.
eduroam allows UWA staff and students, when visiting participating institutions worldwide, to use their UWA Pheme credentials to access the internet and connect to resources at UWA. eduroam does not function for UWA staff and students while they are physically located on a UWA campus.
Staff and students visiting from participating institutions are able to connect via UWA's wireless network to the internet using their credentials from their home institution, without needing to obtain a UWA account.
eduroam is available at more than 500 sites around the world, including:
eduroam is available only to people over 18 years of age, or who have acquired parental consent to use the University's internet connection.
