Eduroam logo

When connecting to Wi-Fi at UNT, you may have noticed a network called eduroam. This network is a global Wi-Fi service enabling researchers, students and staff to obtain secure and fast internet connectivity across campuses and millions of access points across the globe. This benefits visiting researchers and faculty traveling for scholarly and collaborative work, students studying abroad and visiting other campuses, and anyone traveling to another participating organization. Since individuals use their home credentials, there is no need to provision guest accounts to these visitors.
