New campus wireless network–eduroam

Tuesday, August 13th, 2019

ITS is excited to announce eduroam (education roaming), a new wireless network at Drake. Faculty, staff, and students at any eduroam-participating institution can access the eduroam wireless network at all other participating institutions worldwide. This means that by logging into eduroam on campus using your Drake email address and password, you will then be able to connect to eduroam networks wherever you travel, across the state (at Iowa State, University of Iowa, and University of Northern Iowa), or across the globe. Currently eduroam is available in over 1000 locations in 100 countries.

The eduroam network is replacing both DUStudent and DUFacStaff. DUStudent will be phased out on September 13, and DUFacStaff will be phased out on December 31, but we encourage you to switch to eduroam today.

You must log into eduroam using your Drake email address, rather than your Drake ID number. This ensures that your credentials are passed securely anywhere you connect to the eduroam network.
