Eduroam (education roaming) is the secure, world-wide roaming access service developed for the international research and education community.

Eduroam allows students, researchers and staff from participating institutions to obtain Internet connectivity across campus and when visiting other participating institutions using their Wi-Fi enabled devices. Eduroam comes in two flavours, Home and Visited. The university operates both types of service.


The University of Cumbria is a participating member of eduroam, and as such all University of Cumbria staff and students can use eduroam at all participating sites around the world at no cost.

    Configuring eduroam

    Eduroam is available on most popular devices, however it should be noted that not all devices are compatible with the service and some older devices may not work with the App intended for your operating system.


    Tools are available to assist you with installing and configuring eduroam on your device, and the tool you use will depend on your device type, model, and OS, etc.

    Generally, we recommend using the “geteduroam” app for newer devices. However, if this does not work or is unavailable for your device, we recommend the “eduroamCAT” app.

    Both “geteduroam” and “eduroamCAT” are available from the App Store or Google Play, respectively. However, they may not be available for your specific device/model/OS. If that is the case, please open a web browser and visit for alternative installation options. Instructions are provided within the apps.

    When searching for your institution, please look for “University of Cumbria”.

    If asked to choose a profile, select “UoC_Students_and_Staff”.
