Connecting to Eduroam

What is eduroam?

The eduroam (education roaming) network is a secure, world-wide roaming wireless service that many campuses have deployed to their networks. Once you’re connected to eduroam, you can enjoy WiFi access at TCU, and other participating educational institutions. This network is available for the personal devices of current Faculty/Staff and students (guests from other eduroam campuses can also use this network).  If you have questions about this new system, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions Page for more details.
