Eduroam to become only secure wireless option at UM

UM currently offers two options for secure wireless network service, UMwpa and Eduroam. That will change on Wednesday, August 9 when UMwpa will be discontinued and Eduroam will become the sole secure wireless network on campus.

If you use UMwpa as your wireless network, we encourage you to log into Eduroam as soon as possible to avoid interruption to your wireless service. Beginning Aug. 9, UMwpa will not show up as an available wireless network.

Logging into Eduroam wireless

Your Eduroam login credentials are similar to UMwpa in that they both use your NetID and NetID password. With Eduroam, however, you need to add "@umontana.edu" after your NetID.

Example:

Username: ab123456@umontana.edu
Password: Your NetID password

For more information, visit our wireless support site, or contact IT Central at 243-HELP.
