Eduroam is a worldwide network-access service developed for the international research and education community. It allows affiliates from participating institutions to obtain internet connectivity while on our campus. If you find yourself as a visitor to another campus that uses eduroam, then your will automatically obtain internet connectivity as well.
Visitors to campus should use the network called Roo-Guest. No ID or password is required to access this network and it is separated from our normal network. Users on this network cannot access sensitive data areas such as Brightspace or MyAkron.
TIP: Don't share your password!
The University of Akron will never e-mail you and ask you to disclose or verify your UA password. If you receive a suspicious e-mail with a link to update your account information, do not click on the link; instead, report the e-mail to The University of Akron at firstname.lastname@example.org for investigation.
