Nevada eduroam provides easy connectivity for students, educators, and researchers.
What is eduroam?
eduroam is the secure, global roaming access service developed for the international research and education community and now supported by NSHE System Computing Services (SCS). eduroam allows students, researchers, and staff to connect to the Internet on campus and at participating locations simply by opening their laptop or pulling out their smart device.
Who is SCS?
System Computing Services (SCS), a division of the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE), is the Internet2 connector for Nevada. SCS is authorized to deliver eduroam and other services to select organizations: state agencies; municipalities; or any entity with a component of education or research in their mission, such as K-12s, libraries, healthcare, museums, etc.
The eduroam experience
When students, teachers, or researchers visit participating entities, at tens of thousands of locations around the world, wireless internet access will “just work” when they open their device, as their credentials are securely sent to their own IT system for authentication.
- No more searching for an open network and password to connect.
- Less risk of unintentionally connecting to an illicit network.
- Less risk of unintentionally exposing information across an unsecured network.
