Information Technology is pleased to announce that CSI will be implementing eduroam on Thursday, Dec. 1. What follows are some important FAQs for your reference. We have created an eduroam Webpage with additional information and tutorials.
What is eduroam?
Any user (faculty/staff/student) that is part of the eduroam network will be able to log in 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 log in 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.
How does a user connect to eduroam?
CUNY individuals will be able to connect to eduroam using their CUNYfirst credentials. Once your device is configured for eduroam, you will be able to automatically connect to the wireless at any participating location (e.g., other higher education institutions). To assist you in configuring your device for eduroam, please utilize the eduroam Configuration Assistant Tool (CAT).
