eduroam is the wireless network available to campus.

eduroam, short for education roaming, is a worldwide consortium of colleges and universities that provide wireless internet access across research and education networks. Students, researchers, faculty, and staff can connect to participating institutions' wireless networks with their home institution's user credentials.

The easiest way to configure your mobile device for eduroam is to connect to the eduroam network directly and use your HawkID@uiowa.edu and password to authenticate. Please see our configuration instructions.

Over 400 U.S. institutions participate in eduroam worldwide. See www.eduroam.org for a list of participating schools. Once you configure your device for eduroam network access on your home institution's campus, you can connect to other member networks using your eduroam username ("hawkid@uiowa.edu") and passphrase.

More information about eduroam can be found at www.eduroam.org.

Guests from other eduroam institutions should pre-configure their device on their home network before connecting to the UI eduroam network. If you have done that, connect directly to the eduroam network and use your home institution's credentials to log in. If you have issues connecting, contact your home institution's IT support for assistance.

Also, the attwifi network can be used by campus guests to connect to the Internet.  More information about the attwifi network can be found on this ITS support website: https://its.uiowa.edu/guestwifi
