Roaming Wi-fi Connectivity


eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, worldwide roaming wireless service for the international education and research community.

It allows students, faculty, staff, and researchers at K-12 schools, libraries and museums to access secure Wi-Fi connections using the home institution credentials at more than 2,500 locations in the U.S. and at more than 33,000 locations worldwide. If your home organization is an eduroam participant, safe roaming is as simple as opening your computing device and connecting to the eduroam Wi-Fi signal.

Link Oregon is the official eduroam support organization in Oregon for K-12 schools and Educational Service Districts (ESDs), libraries and museums and maintains a statewide agreement with Internet2, the U.S operator for eduroam.  All our member institutions from these sectors qualify for eduroam.

Seamless Roaming Internet Access

Bridge the Digital Divide

Securely extends an institution’s Wi-Fi network for use by local or roaming students, faculty, staff, and researchers with a simple set up. Visitors use their home institution network credentials to access Wi-Fi services at all eduroam-participating institutions; the secure login system keeps users’ identities and passwords private, and visitors can be allocated to a separate VLAN to isolate traffic. Protects a user’s identity and data when they are roaming on an eduroam-participating organization’s network.

Accommodates the mobile connectivity requirements for supporting local users connecting to your local network, visitors connecting to your local network, and local users connecting to other participating networks.

Eliminates the need to supply temporary accounts to visiting users, reducing the administrative and support burden imposed by students and researchers moving between institutions.

Offers ease of implementation and first line support through the home institution and then through the Support Organization (such as Link Oregon).

Ensures compliance-aware service filters for K-12 environments.

Extends access to the Wi-Fi networks of all eduroam-participating institutions using the login credentials of one’s home organization; eliminates the need to establish guest accounts or acquire temporary credentials.

Extending Wi-Fi through anchor institutions augments access in service-limited or low-income communities where broadband is not readily available and affordable.

Working with Link Oregon on eduroam

Who We Work With

As the designated Support Organization in Oregon for eduroam, Link Oregon can work on eduroam implementation with the following:

  • All K-12 public education service districts (ESDs) and school districts
  • Private and charter K-12 institution
  • State and public libraries
  • Oregon’s public and non-profit museums

Our Role

Our service agreement offers access to eduroam technology, support, and resources for eligible organizations to stand up eduroam services. Participating organizations will benefit from a common set of implementation options, assistance in deploying and maintaining eduroam equipment and services, and access to best practices. Our role includes providing guidance in setting up eduroam and offering second-level support to participating organizations. First level support and escalations are handled by Internet2. We collaborate and partner closely with Internet2 on our vision to extend the adoption of eduroam across the state of Oregon.
