eduroam (EDUcation ROAMing) is an authentication service allowing students, staff, researchers and faculty to securely access wireless services at participating higher education institutions across Canada and around the world, without the need for obtaining a guest account.
eduroam is accessible to all users of participating institutions having an active account. This service is offered free of charge.
It allows users from HEC Montreal visiting another participating institution, as well as users from other participating institutions visiting HEC Montreal, to log-in using the same credentials (User ID, password) they would on their own campus.
You need a laptop (or any other wireless enabled device) that supports the common wireless protocols, as well as 802.1X (secure authentication). The laptop needs to be set up to use the eduroam network (SSID) which can be found on every participating eduroam institution.
